BANGALORE: A couple committed suicide over family disputes at Rajanukunte Police station limits.

The deceased have been identified as Manjuala (25) and her husband Rajanna (35), residents of Abbe Vishwanathapur near Hesaraghatta.

According to the police, Manjula, a native of Munireddypallya in Hindupur, had to attend a family function but was not allowed to go by her husband Rajanna, a real estate businessman, who had to attend a wedding of his relative. Meanwhile, Rajanna asked his wife to join him before going for the family function. But Manjula did not agree and this resulted in a fight between the couple. After a while, Manjula went and locked herself inside a room on Saturday evening. When she did not come out, her husband grew suspicious and repeatedly knocked on the door. When there was no response, he broke open the door and found her body hanging from the ceiling on Sunday morning. He immediately shifted her to a nearby hospital, where she was declared brought dead.

Rajanna, who was upset over his wife’s death allegedly committed suicide by hanging at his farm on Monday. He hanged himself from a tree branch, using a plastic wire, said the police. The couple, who used to quarrel frequently over family issues, have two children Vinay and Monica, the police added.
