On a fine Saturday morning, kids were playing cricket in a park of the NFC locality when they stumbled upon something. It wasn’t a stone or a log, there were two dead bodies. It turned out to be of a couple who were hardly in their 30’s. Obviously, the murder had some motive as the bodies were neatly hidden under a heap of grass.
There were strangulation marks all over and to add up to the horror, police saw that the hands and legs of the female victim were tied. The couple also had handkerchief tied around their necks.
Murder by poison was the first instinct of police but as there were strangulation marks, they thought it could be a murder as well. It is still an unsolved case.

Luckily, her two and a half-year-old daughter wasn’t harmed even though she was at the murder scene. It could have been a close relative or a person seeking revenge, or probably just a case of a break in. But that surely doesn’t explain why the other innocent child was killed mercilessly.
It was suspicious that even the husband wasn’t at home. Police also looked at the crime from a different angle, where the husband could be involved. After checking the house, they also found out that Rs.35, 000 in cash and jewelry were missing.

But, as there were no injury marks found on the dead body, it could very well be a case of poisoning. When the victim’s family came to know about it, they refused to believe that and claimed that it is a murder.
