Midnapore: A young primary school teacher and his wife have been found dead in mysterious circumstances at Tamluk in East Midnapore district.

Malay Maity (33) and Sharmista Maity (27) were found dead in their residence at Tamluk’s Narandari today morning. Malay was dead in the kitchen; Sharmista’s body was found on their bed.

The couple was married for the past four years and were blessed with a son, who is now two-and-a-half year old. Their aberrant death has triggered a sensation in the locality as the neighbours say that the two were in good terms.

Police have not found any suicide note in the house or any signs of miscreant intrusion from outside. Deceased Malay’s father has expressed suspicion that Malay first strangulated Sharmista and then hanged himself in the kitchen. But he is offering no clue as regards the motive.

The family members of Sharmista have alleged the couple has been murdered and they have demanded a thorough investigation to unravel the mystery. Police have sent the two dead bodies for post-mortem.
