Chittoor: Mystery shrouds the death of a newly married couple whose bodies were found lying naked in the bathroom of their residence at Bharatimitta Street in Pakala Town of Chittoor district on Thursday.
The deceased have been identified as S Althaf Hussain, 32 and his wife S Samiya, 30.
Police said Samiya was working as Grameena Mahila Samakhya Karyadarsi (woman police) at K Oddepalli village secretariat, while Hussain was a software professional with a Bengaluru based firm. He was operating from Pakala remotely due to Work from Home.
Police said that colleagues of Samiya made a phone call to her for some work. As she didn't respond to the phone calls, colleagues from the panchayat secretariat visited their residence and knocked on the door on Thursday morning. But, no one opened the door.
Later they peeped through the bathroom window and found the two bodies lying naked.
Police suspect that electrocution might have the reason for the death of the couple. However, they didn't rule out the possible suicide.
Sub-inspector Raja Sekhar and his team opened the door under the supervision of revenue officials and sent the bodies for postmortem.
Pakala police have registered a case and are investigating the reasons behind the mysterious death of the newly married couple.
