A newlywed couple allegedly committed suicide by hanging at their residence in Uttam Nagar on Tuesday afternoon, the police said.
They have been identified as Neetu and Neeraj. No suicide note was recovered and their family members continue to remain puzzled over the deaths, the police said.
Neetu was three-month pregnant. The incident was reported around 1 p.m., when Neetu’s father Ramesh Chander called her several times but did not get any response.
Mr. Chander reached their apartment and spotted, through a window, the couple hanging from the ceiling fan.
He said the couple met him on Tuesday morning, and Neeraj told him about some issue they planned to discuss later in the day.
“I had asked them to come over to my house. I kept calling them for half-an-hour but both of them did not take my calls. I went to their house and saw them hanging,” said Mr. Chander. Neetu had even cooked lunch for the family, the police said.
Preliminary probe suggests that Neeraj murdered Neetu with a rope and then hanged himself . The police suspect discord with a family member as the reason behind the suicide . “Their mobile phones have been sent for forensic examination,” a police officer said.
