Bengaluru: Unable to bear with alleged harassment by their son and daughter-in-law, an elderly couple ended their lives at their residence in Girinagar.

The deceased have been identified as Krishnamurthy (70), a former BEL employee, and his wife Swarna (68), both residents of Girinagar Main Road. They left behind a death note penned on the wall of their bedroom.

 

While Swarna ended her life by consuming poison, Krishnamurthy consumed poison and later hanged to the ceiling of his bedroom.

The couple took the extreme step while their son and daughter-in-law had gone to work.

According to police, the incident took place on Friday night which came to light when the deceased son and daughter-in-law, both software engineers at a private firm in Whitefield, returned home at around 10:30 pm.

Upon reaching home, they found the bedroom door of their parents shut and received no response from inside despite repeated calls and knocks on the door. When they peeped through the window they found Krishnamurthy hanging from the ceiling.

 

The police was alerted who broke open the door and found a death note penned on the wall of the bedroom. The death note read, “From hell to heaven. Our son and daughter-in-law are responsible for our deaths.”
