Newlywed couple found dead

A newly married couple were found dead under mysterious circumstances at their house in 2nd Cross, Noornagar, Kothanur.

Afroze Pasha, 26, and Heena, 21, allegedly ended their lives by consuming poison late on Friday night, police said. The motive for their death is yet to be ascertained, as the couple, who had entered wedlock just two months ago, were said to be happily married.

Heena, a native of Upparpet in Chintamani, Kolar district, was a relative of Pasha, a scrap dealer.

On Friday, Pasha returned home at around 5 pm and the couple locked themselves in their room, police said. Early Saturday morning, Pasha’s elder brother Tabrez had come to their house, but when he knocked on the door, there was no response. He opened the rear window and peeped in and found Pasha lying on a cot and Heena on the floor. He broke open the door and rushed both of them in an unconscious state to hospital where doctors declared them ‘brought dead’.
