Dehradun: In a heartwrenching incident coming from Dehradun, a 4-day-old baby was left with dead bodies for two to three days after the parents allegedly died by suicide, police said. The matter came to light when some locals informed police about the stench coming from one house in the Clement Town area. Police rescued the infant and immediately sent him to a hospital where the doctors said he is fine.
“When we broke the door, we found the bodies of the 25-year-old husband and his 22-year-old wife. We also found their 4-day-old baby there. As the bodies seemed to be two to three days old, we immediately sent the baby to the hospital, where doctors are monitoring the health condition”, Shishupal Rana Clement Town police station in-charge said.
According to the initial probe, the woman was the second wife and there was a lot of tension in the marriage. The neighbours claimed that the couple had a baby four days ago. The deceased man is a resident of Saharanpur and used to operate a JCB machine.
“There were no injury marks on the bodies. Prima facie, it seems they died by suicide after consuming some poisonous substance. But the exact reason for the deaths will be revealed after their post-mortem report is received”, he said.
