The deceased were identified as Laxmichandra and Babita Rout, both natives of Odisha, said DCP (south) Prem Nath, adding that the couple has left behind a one-page suicide note in Odia, in which they written that "it is nobody's fault" and the "the decision" was theirs.
The couple's only son, Avinash, died of suspected dengue on September 8 after allegedly being denied admission at two prominent private hospitals on the previous day.
Taking cognisance of the matter, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain has ordered issuance of show-cause notice to the two hospitals, a senior government official said.
The couple's bodies were discovered by a neighbour on the intervening night between Thursday and Friday. The couple had their arms tied together with a stole.
