Panaji: A software engineer and his wife has
allegedly committed suicide at their residence here for living
"a very eventful and happy life together".

39-year-old Anand Ranthidevan and his 36-year-old wife
Deepa were found hanging in their flat at Merces village on
October 6, police said.

But the police are left baffled with the suicide note
written by couple.

According to police, the note said the couple is ending
their lives as they "had enjoyed the life and did not want to
live more". The couple had even kept aside Rs 10,000 for their
cremation.

However, the family members of the couple have expressed
their unwillingness to take back their bodies, which are in
highly decomposed state, police said.

Anand hailed from Chennai, while Deepa was from
Bangalore.

Deepa`s family has given their written consent to police
for cremating her, while Anand`s father will submit a similar
letter in the next couple of days, a police official probing
the case said.

"We will wait for the formal letter and later cremate
the body as both the families have expressed their
unwillingness to take back their bodies, which are in highly
decomposed state," he said.

The bodies are kept in morgue of the Goa Medical College
and Hospital.

The investigators said the couple had stayed in a five
star hotel before shifting to their apartment which they had
purchased recently.
