An elderly couple was found dead under mysterious circumstances at their house in Mubarak Mehal Colony here on Saturday.

According to information, when Pritam Singh (78) and wife Surjit Kaur (77) did not answer the door after the milkman came, he sounded the neighbours, who found the two lying unconscious in their room. They called the police.

“The bodies did not have external injuries. To ascertain the cause of death, we will get the post-mortem done from a board of doctors,” said Rural Sangrur DSP Satpal Sharma.

The couple did not have children.

It’s shocking as they did not have enmity with anyone, said a neighbourhood shopkeeper.
