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.
