A 47-year-old man, Girish Bhatnagar allegedly killed his 34-year-old wife Manisha Kohli before committing suicide after a fight between them at an apartment in Greater Noida.

The couple got married two years ago after they met through a matrimonial site. Her sister was also living with them at their home in Galaxy Vega Apartments.

Girish Bhatnagar worked in Delhi earlier but quit his job six months ago. Recently he got to know that this was his wife’s second marriage, Police said according to the note, the man also came to know that his wife suspected his relationship with his sister.

These developments in their relationship had apparently disturbed the couple’s life which led Girish Bhatnagar into depression.

‘This morning when the wife’s brother and relatives tried contacting her on phone there was no response. After several attempts to reach out to her, those nearby came to their apartment,’ Bisrakh Station House Officer (SHO) Akhilesh Tripathi said.

The SHO said when the door was broken down, the bodies of the couple were found inside the house. The woman’s body bore severe injuries on the head and was soaked in blood. The man’s body was found hanging from a ceiling, police said.

The bodies were later sent for post-mortem and police started the investigation.
