A senior citizen couple was found dead in a house in Ashok Vihar here, police said on Saturday.
The deceased have been identified as Ram Lal, 70, and his wife Kaushalya, 65, who were found dead at 9 a.m. in their house at Ashok Vihar Phase 3.
Police said that Ram Lal was suffering from heart problems. A few days ago, the couple had hired a nurse to take care of Ram Lal.
Neighbours said the couple had not seen outside for the last four-five days. Ram Lal’s nephew Raman Nagpal became suspicious when the couple did not answer the phone.
He reached their house on Saturday morning and forcefully opened the door with the help of neighbours. The couple was found lying dead with multiple injuries.
A case has been registered at the Bharat Nagar police station here.
Police is searching for the nurse as she is missing.
