Unhappy ending: Police removing the bodies of the couple after neighbours alerted them of their deathly find.

A penknife, believed to have been used by the man to kill himself, was found next to his body.
Initial investigations found incision marks between 10 to 15 cm long on the couple’s necks.
According to a neighbour who declined to be named, he had heard noises coming from the couple’s unit at about 10pm.
“It sounded like they were fighting. Not long after that, we were stunned to hear about the discovery of their bodies,” he said when met at the scene.
He said that the couple, known as Selvam and Anita, did not have any children and they had been staying there for several years.
“Anita was working as a part-time beautician,” he said.
Another neighbour who also did not want to be identified described them as a loving couple.
“I’ve never seen or heard them quarrelling,” she said.
