Mortal remains of an elderly couple, who were stabbed to death, were found four days after murder in their house in Bengaluru.

The deceased, 61-year old Parvathraj G and 55-year-old Chandrakala ran a scrap-paper business and were residents of a three-storey building on Coles Road in Pulikeshinagar police station limits. The bodies were recovered on Sunday after their neighbour informed the police of a foul smell emanating from the house, the police said.

The couple were last seen by neighbours at 8:30 am on Friday and police feel that the murder could have been committed a few hours later.

While the couple lived on the third floor, they had rented out the first two floors; the ground floor to a family and the first floor to a coaching institute, reported Deccan Herald

Kiran, their only son, who works as a software engineer in the United States of America was scheduled to visit them on May 8, however is reportedly flying to Bengaluru after hearing the news.

Mala, a relative who stays near-by said: “I contacted Kiran as foul smell was emanating from the house... The police broke open the door and the bodies were lying in the hall.”

Additional Commissioner of Police (East) P Harishekaran said that the man had over 15 stab injuries on the chest, stomach and back and the woman seemed to have been stabbed once. Initial investigation revealed that the murder could have been committed by a known person as there were no signs of forced entry into the house. The bodies were sent to Bowring Hospital for post mortem, reported The Hindu.
