KARACHI, Aug 11: A couple was found dead the next morning after their wedding in North Nazimabad. Police said Mohammed Azeem and Beenish were married on Friday night at a marriage hall in North Nazimabad. They said the groom’s family found the couple dead in their bedroom on Saturday morning.

The bodies were shifted to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for a post-mortem examination. The cause of their death would be ascertained after the chemical examination.

North Nazimabad Town Police Officer told Dawn that the couple along with other family members had returned home around 4 o’ clock in the morning.
