The deceased, hailing from Beed village, were identified as Natwarlal Bhavsar (45) and his wife Kamla Bhavsar (38), Additional SP Devendra Patidar told reporters, adding that the couple was childless and could have taken the extreme step out of frustration though he did not specify the exact cause since investigations are underway.

However, according to villagers, the couple left home early in the morning for taking bath in Narmada river but later plunged into the reservoir from the dam`s viewpoint.
Police said they have fished out the bodies and were investigating the case to find out if it was a suicide or an accident.
