UDAYAPUR, Dec 18 : A married couple has been found dead in a forest of Deurali hill of Udayapur district on Tuesday morning. Suicide has been suspected.
According to Udayapur district police office, Akriti Tamang of Lalpatta was found hanging from a tree in a forest near their house while her husband Shivaraj Tamang´s body lay on the ground under the tree.
Through preliminary investigation it has been revealed that the couple had tied knot just six months ago and Akriti was suffering from chronic illness.
