London: An Indian-origin married couple have been found dead in their home in Southall, a Punjabi-dominated suburb on the outskirts of west London, police said on Sunday.
Sanjeev Kumar (36), also known as Satbir Singh, was found hanged while his wife, Poonam (35), lay dead at their residence on Western Road on Friday.
According to Scotland Yard, post-mortem examinations have revealed that Poonam had been killed by “compression of the neck”, while her husband died of “suspension caused by hanging”.
Kumar’s death was not seen as suspicious from the start, implying a suicidal act. “Officers were called at approximately 3.10 pm on Friday to an address in Priory Way, Western Road, Southall following concerns for the welfare of residents there,” a Metropolitan Police spokesperson said. “Officers attended and discovered the bodies of a man and a woman, both aged in their 30s.
Both were pronounced dead at the scene,” the spokesperson said. (PTI)
