According to police, the couple were married in February. Kumar and Devi hailed from Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh  respectively and have been living in Hyderabad for close to a year.

The husband was reportedly an alcoholic and used to pick up fights with his wife all the time.

Four days ago their relatives had asked the couple not to quarrel, though, they again fought on Monday even as Diwakar allegedly beat her up. Hanging on to the two ends of a saree from a ceiling fan, the couple chose to end their lives. Police, however, did not find any suicide note.

The neighbours found milk packets not lifted in front of the door of the couple’s house and got suspicious, following which they informed the local security personnel, who from the window saw the couple hanging. They immediately informed the matter to police, it is learnt. A case of unnatural death was registered and the bodies were sent for postmortem.

Rajendra Prasad(48) and his wife Annapurna (40), according to police, consumed poison along with dinner on Monday night and died in sleep. Their children were sleeping in the next room and found the parents dead on Tuesday morning. Police registered a case of unnatural death.

They hail from Aler in Nalgonda district and have been residing at Sai Babanagar in Chowdriguda in Ghatkesar police limits for the past one year. “The deceased had taken nearly `30 lakh from 30 people in the last six months promising to provide jobs at Survey of India.
