A retired bank employee and his wife have been found murdered in Jagadhri town of Yamunanagar district.
The deceased have been identified as Rishipal Goyal (80) and his wife Sneh Lata (75) of Gaumati Gali near the old grain market of Jagadhri.
A case was registered against unidentified persons under Section 302 (murder) of the IPC yesterday on the complaint of Amit Goyal, son of the deceased, of Bhattanwali village in Paonta Sahib, HP.
The complainant told the police that his parents lived alone in Jagadhri. He said he called his parents around 11 am on Monday to know about their health, but their phone was switched off.
He said then he sent his nephew Vivek Goyal, who lives in Jagadhri, to his parents’ house. “Vivek told us that the house door was open and the bodies were found on two beds. My mother had a head injury,” said Amit.
After getting the information about the crime, the police visited the spot. The police said it was not clear yet why the couple was murdered as no jewellery and other household items were missing from the house.
Suresh Kumar Sharma, SHO, city police station, Jagadhri, said the bodies were handed over to their family after postmortem examination on Tuesday.
