Woman hangs herself, husband follows suit

 A couple, who fought over domestic issues, committed suicide in their house at Belathur in Kadugodi on Sunday evening.

The police have identified the deceased as Manjunath Reddy (27), an electrician, his wife Nagaveni (23), an employee of a super market store. They are native of Chintamani in Chikkaballapur district and were married for three and half years.

On Sunday evening, Reddy and Nagaveni got into a heated argument over the house being not maintained properly. After a while, Reddy walked out of the house. A while later he returned home and was shocked to find Nagaveni hanging from the ceiling fan, said the police.

Reddy brought to down Nagaveni’s body and also hanged himself from the same ceiling fan. The incident came to light, when Nagaveni’s sister came home in the evening. She found Nagaveni lying on the floor while Reddy was hanging, added the police.

She alerted her neighbours, who informed the Kadugodi police station. The police shifted the bodies for post-mortem. The family sources said that Nagaveni wanted to shift to a different area but Reddy was not keen as he did not have enough money to shift. The couple used to fight over this issue. The actual reason will be known after investigation, the police said.

A case has been registered in Kadugodi police station.
