Delhi cops suspect wife killed bureaucrat, hanged herself

A bureaucrat and his banker wife were found dead under mysterious circumstances at their south Delhi flat on Friday, the police said.

The bodies of K Vijay Kumar, 57, and his wife Sita, 51, were found in their first-floor government flat at Kaka Nagar's D block around 4.50pm.

Kumar, a 1983-batch allied services officer, was attached as advisor (cost) to the ministry of food processing industries. Sita was an assistant branch manager with a private bank.

"Officials from the local police station found Kumar lying on the bed with his throat slit, while Sita hung by the neck with two stoles tied to a rod in the hall," said a police officer investigating

the case.

According to the police, the bodies were recovered after the couple's daughter, Paranya, failed to get any response from her parents after returning from an overnight trip to Rajasthan.

She decided to call the police after learning that her parents had not been seen by neighbours or anyone else in the housing society since Thursday evening.

The police said initial investigations revealed there were no signs of forced entry into the flat.

Investigators are probing the possibility of a marital discord having led to the deaths.

A police official associated with the investigation said there were reasons to believe Sita murdered Kumar and then hanged herself.

Vivek Gogia, joint commissioner of police (southwest range), told reporters, "We have procured forensic evidence from the scene of crime with the assistance of a forensics team attached to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Three teams have been formed to investigate the case."
