A couple was found dead under mysterious circumstances at Gyan Khand area of Indirapuram, police said on Saturday.
Neeraj Singhania and his wife Ruchi, who got married four years ago, were found dead in the bathroom of their house on Friday night, district police chief H N Singh said.
The bodies were spotted by the family members. The couple was rushed to the hospital where the doctors declared them brought dead, he said.
Prem Prakash, father of Neeraj, said that the couple had retired to their room after the Holi festivities on Friday night.
“Other members of the family were also present inside the flat on Friday. The room of the couple was locked from inside. When the family members called them to have dinner late Friday night, there was no response. The door of their room was knocked again but without any response. Thereafter, one of the family members peeped through the ventilator of the bathroom and found both lying on the floor,” said a police officer from Indirapuram police station.
“The door of the bathroom was also bolted from inside and it was later broken to gain entry. Both the victims were rushed to a hospital where they were declared brought dead,” the officer said.
Police officials said that the postmortem report of the victims — Neeraj Singhania , 37, and his wife Ruchi, 35 — could not conclude the reason behind the deaths and their viscera has been preserved for further analysis. Neeraj was working as a deputy general manager with a reputed company, offering international telecom solutions while his wife was also a professional with a company in Noida.
“The autopsy reports have remained inconclusive and viscera has been preserved for further analysis. They both were found inside the bathroom in a naked state. There were no indications of any electrocution incident, suffocation or any gas formation inside the bathroom due to any electronic appliance such as geyser. It is strange that none of them survived and could not raise any alarm before they died together,” said Dr Rakesh Kumar Mishr, circle officer (Indirapuram).
No complaints have been filed in the matter yet, the officer added.
