IN A shocking incident, a newly married couple committed suicide at their house in Kolar area on the night intervening Friday and Saturday.
According to police, the man and wife ended their lives by hanging themselves to death in the same room. They had apparently torn a ‘sari’ to hang themselves.
The couple had married just three months ago. After the love marriage, the couple was living in a rented housed and there was apparently no discord between the two to take the extreme step. It is not clear what prompted them to end their lives as no suicide note was found from the spot.
After marriage, Naresh hardly worked and his younger brother looked after the carpentry shop. But the financial condition of the family was not too bad either.
The deceased, Naresh, 25, resident of Namrata Nagar near Rajharsh Colony, was a carpenter. He had married Vidya against her parents’ wishes. Vidya was his distant relative. His father had died and his mother worked as sanitary worker with the Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC). Naresh’s youngest brother lived with him.
On Friday night, Naresh and Vidya after a dinner with the family went to their room. However, the door did not open in the morning and remained shut from inside.
When the house owner, who lived on the upper floor, came downstairs to switch on a motor pump, the deceased’s mother expressed her surprise over the closed door as the two were early risers.
After some minutes, when they peeped in, the two, to their horror, found the bodies hanging. Naresh was found hanging by the fan and Vidya by the ceiling beam. Upon learning about the incident, the police rushed to the spot. The post-mortem reports confirmed that the both had committed suicide. The Kolar police are investigating the case.
