Couple’s bodies recovered: Honour killing suspected

BHOPAL: In a suspected case of honour killing, the body of a couple was recovered from a well in Myana town of Guna district on Monday. Hands of both the bodies were tied together.

Police said that the bodies of Bunty, 22, and Bhagwati, 22, both residents of Myana town were recovered from a well. Investigating officer in the case, sub-inspector Abid Khan said, “The bodies were fished out at around 5 pm and have been sent to district hospital for post-mortem which would be conducted on December 10”.

“We are investigating on all aspects and things would be clearer after postmortem reports,” Khan said. “As one hand of the boy was found tied up with one of the girl’s hands it is raising suspicion, but at the same time it could also be interpreted as an attempt to die together,” Khan added. So, as of now it would be premature to conclude anything, it could either be honour killing or suicide, he said.
