Grieving couple commits suicide after dog dies
HYDERABAD, India (Reuters) – Unable to come to terms with the death of their pet dog, an elderly couple in southern India committed suicide by hanging themselves, police said on Monday.
The bodies of 67-year-old retired soldier C.N. Madanraj and his wife, Tarabai, 63, were found on Sunday in their home in a suburb of Hyderabad.
Police said the childless couple had held a burial ceremony for their dog of 13 years, called “Puppy,” and hosted a feast for friends before hanging themselves in their bedroom.
