In a shocking incident, a couple from Maharashtra living in the US was found dead at their home after neighbours saw their four-year-old daughter crying alone in the balcony of their house, family sources said on Friday.
The couple's four-year-old daughter is safe. The couple, originally from Ambajogai in Beed, Maharashtra, had moved to the United States for work purpose. Meanwhile, it has not been revealed whether the couple committed suicide or not.
The deceased have been identified as Balaji Bharat Rudravar (32) and Aarti Balaji Rudravar (30). Some US media outlets said the couple died of an apparent stabbing in their North Arlington apartment. The husband apparently stabbed and sliced his wife in the abdomen as she unsuccessfully tried to fight him off in their living room, a US media report said.
Meanwhile, US police have informed the news of the couple' death to their families in India.
The exact cause of death of the couple will be known only after the autopsy report is received."Investigators were waiting for the medical examiner to determine the cause and circumstances of the death, but confirmed both victims had been stabbed," the report said.
