BANGALORE: A 41-year-old quality controller in a garment factory and his wife allegedly committed suicide in Nagawara in K.G. Halli police station limits on Tuesday.

According to the police, Venugopal was found hanging while his wife Devika (33) was found dead.

The police suspect that Devika might have consumed poison after seeing her husband hanging.

The police are yet to ascertain the reason behind the incident. Hitesh, the couple’s seven-year-old son, was shocked to see his parents dead when he returned from the school on Monday evening.

Hitesh closed the door and stayed in the neighbour’s house saying that his parents have not returned home. On Tuesday morning, Hitesh called his grandfather who stays in Bellandur.

Hitesh’s grandparents came and informed the police about the incident.
