After a few hours, a loud noise of someone falling on floor came out of the house which alerted the neighbours, and they entered the house.

Inside the house they saw the woman lying unconscious on the floor while the man was hanging through his neck from a ceiling fan.

It is suspected that the woman also tried to hang herself but somehow the rope with which she had tied her neck snapped.

Both of them were rushed to Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital, where doctors declared Ajay brought dead.According to the police, Rita’s husband knew about her relationship with Ajay.

He had even caught the two in a compromising position in the house some days back.
After finding the two in his house, Rita’s husband had registered a complaint against Ajay in the police station.
