Fatehabad, June 24: In yet another suspected honour killing, highly decomposed bodies of two teenaged lovers were found hanging in an abandoned house on Rattia road in Fatehabad district.

The boy and the girl, who have not been identified yet, were found hanging from the hook of a ceiling fan, police said.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Shiv Charan said the angle of honour killing could not be ruled out as both were found hanging from the same hook and there was a possibility that their bodies were hanged after murdering them.

The house where the bodies of these youngsters were found was closed for a long time. Prior to the year 2000, this house was used as an office of a regional party, Charan said.

The DSP said police suspect that the lovers either committed suicide together or were murdered and their bodies hanged.

Dogs had eaten away the lower portions of their bodies.

The stench led to the incident coming to light.

A forensic team was probing the case, police said.
