Madikeri:  Quarrel for petty reasons has led to a couple commit suicide by hanging selves at their house near A.V. School near Pampina Kere here in Kodagu.

The deceased are Chethan (34), a Maths teacher at a private Kannada Medium Aided School and Vani (27).

Sometime ago, the couple had quarrelled for petty reasons and the family members of Chethan and Vani had solved the issue, it is learnt.

Yesterday afternoon, Vani, who called her parents over the phone, informed them that she was ending her life and her parents in-turn called Chethan and informed the matter.

Chethan, who immediately rushed home, found Vani hanging using a saree. Chethan then cut the saree and placed the body of Vani on the bed. He later went out of the house and brought the plastic wire which was being used to dry clothes and hung himself, it is learnt.

But before taking the extreme step, Chethan called his parents over the phone and informed them about what had happened besides telling them he too was committing suicide. His parents immediately informed the matter to Madikeri City Police. But by the time the Police arrived, the couple had ended their lives. The couple’s child was found playing in the neighbour’s house.
