The husband, who worked in Qatar, had returned home just three days ago

A couple allegedly ended their lives in their house at Kurmaikul village in Rangunia upazila, Chittagong on Friday evening.

The deceased were identified as Mohammad Iskandar, 24, and his wife Ruma Akter, 22. They are survived by a 15th-month-old son.

Quoting local people, police said Iskandar, who worked in Qatar, returned to the country on August 10 to be with his wife of two years, child and parents for some time.

On Friday evening, Iskandar’s mother Firoza Begum found the couple’s room locked from inside. Getting no response from inside, Firoza peeped through the window of the room and found both of them hanging from the ceiling.

She immediately raised an alarm and neighbours broke open the door. Police were informed soon as well.

Khan Nurul Islam, the officer-in-charge (OC) of Rangunia police station, said a team soon rushed to the spot and sent the bodies to the local hospital morgue for an autopsy.

However, Ruma’s father Jamal Uddin alleged foul play. He claimed that Arif, the brother-in-law of her daughter, used to stalk her often and he had killed the couple.

OC Islam said they were looking into the deaths and the allegation.
