Young Couple's bodies found hanging from tree in Lucknow, UP LUCKNOW: The bodies of a newly wedded couple were found hanging from a tree in Deoria district on Thursday in an incident barely a week after two minors were gang raped and hanged to death in Badaun. Families of the couple insist it wasn't suicide, while police suspect a case of robbery and murder, claiming that no cash, jewellery or personal belongings of the victims were recovered from the scene of crime. The family members held a protest with the bodies threatening not to cremate them till the accused were arrested. According to the police, Nagendra (25) of Sidhua village and Mamta (20) of Farenda were gagged with a cloth. However, the police failed to explain why the 'robbers' would hang the bodies. The noose used to hang the couple was at least three feet long. Both the bodies were about five feet above the ground. This means the killers would have to climb up a considerable height to hang the duo of average height. Around 7am on Thursday, locals saw the bodies hanging from a tree near Pipra village under Tarkulha police station and informed the police. The couple had got married on May 2 and last week Mamta had gone to stay with her parents. Nagendra had gone to get her back and was expected to return by Wednesday evening.
