A Bengaluru couple committed suicide on Monday night in Mavalli, leaving a note behind that accused a local BBMP corporator for their death.

The couple ended their lives by hanging themselves at their Mavalli residence near Kalasipalya, late on Monday night, Times of India reported

In their suicide note, 47-year-old N Nanjundaswamy and his wife 40-year-old wife Lata, accused Hemmigepura corporator, Aarya Srinivas, and his associates including K G Krishna, Devegowda, Lakshminarayana Reddy and Tejaswini Lakshminarayan, of harassing them and making them take the extreme step.

According to the police, the couple ran a military hotel near Mavalli and had sustained huge losses recently. They are survived by their son Chandan and daughter Bindu.

“The incident came to light on Monday night when Chandan and his friends broke open the door of their house as his parents did not respond to his knocks. Chandan had returned home and grew suspicious when his mother did not open the door. He tried calling his father’s cellphone multiple times but he too did not answer. Later, he broke down the door with the help of neighbours and found them hanging in the hall,” the police said.

When Chandan found his parents hanging, they were still alive and were rushed to a private hospital. Unfortunately, the couple died on Tuesday night.

According to the TOI report, Corporator Aarya Srinivas said he has no idea why Nanjundaswamy blamed him.

“I did have business dealings with Nanjundaswamy but that was two years ago. I hadn't spoken to him since then but last week, he had called up saying we should sit and talk about a business dispute and I agreed. Today, my friends called in the afternoon with this shocking news,” Srinivas told TOI.

The Kalasipalya Police have registered a case of suicide.
