‘Lovely’ couple die in apparent murder-suicide on exclusive ‘millionaires’ row’

A wealthy married couple have died in a suspected murder-suicide in their £1.5m mansion.

Paramedics found the bodies of Sewa Badial, 87, and his wife Sukhjit, 73, at about 3pm on Tuesday, Mail Online reports.

Shocked neighbours have paid tribute to the "very well off" couple who made their fortune through the textiles industry.

Forensic teams could be seen combing for clues in their gated mock Tudor house in a millionaire's row in West Mids.

The property, which has five beds, four reception rooms and an indoor swimming pool, is sited in the tree-lined street.

Detectives are not looking for anyone else over the deaths.

Paramedics discovered the bodies after 999 crews were called to the scene.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "An investigation has been launched after the bodies of a man and woman were discovered at an address in Coventry.

"Officers were directed by ambulance colleagues to a property in Kenilworth Road just before 3pm yesterday afternoon following the discovery of the body of a man in his 80s in the back garden.

"The body of a 73-year-old woman was subsequently found inside the address.

"The couple have not yet been formally identified but are believed to be husband and wife."

On Wednesday detectives and forensics teams could be seen combing for clues at the home.

One neighbour said: "They are lovely people and I often chat with the lady of the house. They are very nice, very pleasant.

"They are a lovely family. They have grown up children and I think there's a grandparent that lives there as well.

"I don't know what they did for a living but obviously they were very well off, they had a very, very nice house with an indoor swimming pool.

"It's so terrible. It's not something you would ever expect here. I find it extremely surprising."

Another local said: "All the police would say was there was a serious incident.

"There wasn't a fire engine, just a van. I presumed it was to force the hydraulic gates open so the emergency services could get in.

"I'm not sure what they did for a living but there was always stuff coming and going. I didn't know them that well but I've seen them when they walked through. They've always been really nice, friendly people.

"When they've wanted to trim the bushes or do work, they've always been really nice."
