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.

They immediately informed the matter to police, it is learnt. A case of unnatural death was registered and the bodies were sent for postmortem.
