Murthy and Geetha

Bangalore, Nov 17, 2013, DHNS: A couple was found hanging from a ceiling fan in their house at Janata Colony in Jagjeevan Ram Nagar late on Friday evening. The deceased are Murthy, 32, and Geeta, 27. The couple hailed from Tamil Nadu.

Married for 10 years, the couple had four children – three sons and a daughter. Police sources said that on Friday evening, the couple sent their children out to play and ended their lives. Children found the couple hanging from the ceiling fan with two sarees. Police sources said no death note was found.

Geeta’s younger brother Ganesh has stated in his complaint that Murthy was not happy with his sister lending out money. He said Geeta had recently suffered losses as some of her debtors cheated her and this had created a rift between the couple.

He said that the couple suspected each other’s fidelity and had frequent quarrels over the issue. Ganesh suspects that the couple might have had a tiff on the issue and decided to end their lives. Jagjeevan Ram Nagar police have registered a case of unnatural death and are investigating.
