Belthangady, May 09, 2018: A businessman and his wife from Byadagi near Haveri have ended their lives at a lodge in Dharmasthala on Tuesday.
The deceased are Mrityunjaya (60) and his wife Netravathi. The couple had come to Dharmasthala in their car along with their driver two days ago.
On Monday they had visited the temple and were about to return hometown. However, they cancelled their plans of returning and stayed back in the lodge room. When repeated calls to their mobile phones by the driver went unanswered, the driver informed the lodge authorities in the evening. When the lodge door was open both were found dead.
The couple have left behind a death note stating that they were fed up with the current political scenario as well as the cash distribution.
A case has been registered in Dharmasthala police station.
