New Delhi: A young couple was on Saturday found buried in a park in the national capital, police said.

The incident was reported from B-Block of New Friends Colony at around 8 am. The couple is in their early thirties.

"There were strangulation marks on the man's body while the woman's legs and hands were tied. Their bodies were covered by grass," a senior police official said.

The bodies were discovered by boys who were playing cricket in the park. "They were searching for the ball when they accidentally discovered the bodies," the official said.

Two SIM cards were also recovered from the spot.

"Prima facie, it appears that the couple was poisoned to death. However, murder due to strangulation is also a probability as handkerchieves were found tied around the neck of both the victims," the official said.

Investigators were trying to ascertain the identity of the victims.

In another incident, an unidentified man was found stabbed to death under a flyover in Ashram of south east Delhi.

The body bore marks of sharp weapon injuries and he was seemingly hit by stones as well, police said.
