Texas Indian American Couple Found Dead in Apparent Murder-Suicide

An Indian American couple has been found dead April 12 in a bedroom inside their home, in what police have said is a murder-suicide.

Southlake police said the man fatally shot his wife before killing himself.

Police were called to the 400 block of Thistle Court about 2 p.m. after a family member discovered the two bodies.

The Tarrant County medical examiner identified the pair as Anil Kharabanda, 62, and Neeta Kharabanda, 58. They were found dead in the bedroom.

Court records cite tension in the couple’s relationship. They married in 1980 but were involved in divorce proceedings twice, as reported by Dallas Morning News.

Neeta Kharabanda had submitted petitions seeking a divorce in 2003 and 2011, but filed documents later on to say she didn’t want to pursue the cases.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s record show Neeta Kharabanda died at 2:07 pm as result of homicide and Anil Kharabanda died due to suicide at 2:03 pm.
