Elderly couple found dead

Agartala, Oct 11,2018:An elderly couple  were found dead in  their rented house at College Tilla Extension road  under East Agartala police station today morning. Both are  octogenarian. Both  had been residing at Satyajit Saha's house for the past two years.

Police said Like other days, their maid servant came today morning at around 11 am and spotted the rooms were locked in. After failing to get reply from the inside, the made servant informed the house owner.

The house owner came in the scene and called up to the tenant to open the door but he also failed to get any reply. On suspicion, he called the police and broke open the door and saw two bodies were lying on two separate beds in one room.

"It appears they consumed pesticide as stink was coming out of the room. A team of state forensic science laboratory visited the spot and collected sample for examination", police said.The medical examiner will determine the cause and manner of death through the autopsies.

Police have not  released the identities of the couple.
