Bodies of couple, their son found hanging in house

Lucknow: Decomposed bodies of a couple and their son were recovered from a house in Jankipuram area, police said here on Tuesday.

Bodies of Sunil Kumar Varma (37), his wife Kundan (35) and their son Rahul (7) were recovered hanging from the ceiling of their house in sector H Jankipuram yesterday, they said.

Prima facie it seems that the trio had committed suicide as the house was locked from inside, police said. "It seems that the family took the extreme step due to financial crisis," they added.

Sunil and Kundan, who married against the wishes of their families, were living in the rented house from the last three years.

The incident came into light when some locals found foul smell emanating from the house and informed the police.
