Bolangir: A man committed suicide after murdering his wife under Bangomunda police limits of Bolangir district late last night.
According to reports, Kapurchand Bichha of Colonypada in Bhalumunda village had an altercation with his wife Kaikai two months back over some issues following which the latter had gone to her paternal house at Talchakel village in the district.
Kaikai returned to her husband’s house on Friday after things turned normal and the couple had their dinner last night as usual and slept.
However, the daughter-in-law of the couple, identified as Sangita Bachha, spotted their bodies in the house today morning and informed the police.
While the body of the husband was found hanging with a ‘gamucha’ in a room adjacent to the veranda, the wife was found lying on the floor in a pool of blood in the room, reports said.
Sources said Kapurchand hacked Kaikai with a sharp weapon leading to her death on the spot and later committed suicide by hanging himself late night.
Though the exact reason behind the crime is yet to be established, family quarrel is suspected to be the cause behind the deaths.
Bongamunda police rushed to the spot being informed about the incident and launched a probe seizing the bodies.
