Visakhapatnam: A couple from Hyderabad died by suicide at Chaparai Waterfalls, a popular tourist spot close to Araku Valley in the ASR district.

Araku Valley police said the couple was found in an unconscious state near Chaparai and local people took them to Community Hospital. Later they were shifted to King George Hospital where they died on Thursday evening.
