A 35-year-old school teacher and her grand-mother were found killed inside their house in Pandeyganj locality in Wazirganj area on Tuesday morning. The belongings and the valuables in the house were found intact.
Police said Chitra, who was a teacher at a government primary school in Para area, and her grand-mother Angoori Devi (80) were living in their house in Pandeyganj for the last four years after they bought the house from one Mohammed Siraj.
Police said Devi used to walk with the help of a walker while Chitra was unmarried and had got the job of a teacher at a government school after the death of her mother.
Chitra and Devi were found strangulated at their house by their milkman who came to the house in the morning. Later, he informed their neighbour Pawan Verma, who then informed the police about the incident.
Police said Chitra's body was found in the outer room while the body of Devi was found in the inner room of the house. Wazirganj Station Officer Abhinav Singh Pundir said that the bodies have been sent for post mortem. He said prima facie the women appear to have been strangulated to death. Pundir said a minor injury mark was also found on the back of Chitra's neck, which appears to have been made by a knife. He said the women belonged to Bahraich and a cousin of Chitra had been called by the police.
The family did not mix much with the neighbours and the people who were frequent visitors to the house were being questioned, he added.
