KOLKATA: Semi-composed bodies of an elderly couple were recovered from an apartment in the city’s Girish Park area on Tuesday, a senior police officer said.

The police broke open the door and recovered the bodies of Biswajit Mitra (71) and Sipra Mitra (68).
“Preliminary investigation revealed that the couple was depressed due to financial crisis. Though we are yet to find any suicide note, it seems the duo died by suicide,” the investigative officer at Girish Park police station said.
