A family of four, including two minors, were found dead in their apartment near North Goa's Mapusa town on Tuesday, police said.

The deceased Shahu Dhumale, 45, Kavita Dhumale, 40, and their sons -- Paras, 9, and Sairaj, 3, were reportedly found hanging from the ceiling of the apartment at God's Gift complex in the Khorlim suburb of Mapusa.

The family hails from Azara town in Mahrashtra's Kolhapur district and had moved to Goa some years back after Shahu got a job in a firm near Mapusa, located around 10 km north of Panaji.

While senior police officers are on the site and have refused to comment for now, some police sources said Shahu was reportedly facing financial difficulties and may have committed suicide.

Police are examining the sequence of events leading to the death of the two minor boys, Kavita and Shahu himself.

Police are expected to formally brief the media later on Tuesday.IANS
