The deceased are Akhil S Hari, 25, son of Harikumar, and Reshma Ravindran, 21, daughter of Ravindran, a resident of Madampi lane, Poonthole, Thrissur. The Museum police have registered a case of unnatural death and a probe has been initiated. Akhil and Reshma were staff nurses working at the Medical College and SUT Royal Hospital respectively.
