Aizwal: In a very shocking incident, a couple was found dead in their house at Sairang, Mizoram. The body of a 45-year-old man and his live-in partner was found dead under mysterious conditions.
Sairang is located about 30 KM west of Aizawl, the capital city of Mizoram.
The deceased man, identified as Sawma or Zo Robota, was allegedly found dead by hanging, while his live-in partner was apparently hit on her head with a blunt object, which has caused her death.
The preliminary investigation into the case shows that the man first killed his partner and then hanged himself. Their bodies were found in their house on Monday at around 8 PM.
The residents of the area said that both, the man and the woman were alcoholics. They had been living together for months. The couple did not have any children. Both of them were last seen together in the local market on Monday morning. Further investigations on the case are underway.
In another shocking incident, which happened early in November last year, five members of a family were found dead in Kokrajhar's Gossaigon. The five of them committed suicide. The police said that a family consisting of father, mother and their three children were found dead in their house on November 2 morning. The father has been identified as Nirmal Paul, (52). The other family members who were found hanging in their house were Nirmal Paul's wife Mollika Paul (45), and their daughters Puja Paul, Neha Paul, and Sneha Paul. The family were a resident of Tulsibeel in Gossaigaon.
Nirmal Paul was a sub-agent of Bharat Gas at Tulsibeel Market. The neighbours claimed that Paul was under debt due to his business, and the poor family took this extreme step under extreme mental pressure.
Paul's eldest daughter, Puja was working as a teacher at Tulsibeel Jatiya Vidyalaya. His second and third daughters were studying in class XII and X, respectively.
