ARLINGTON BOROUGH, NJ- An Indian IT professional and his pregnant wife were found dead at their apartment in New Jersey in the US. Neighbors alerted the police after spotting the couple’s four-year-old daughter crying alone on the balcony of their home.

The couple was found dead at their 21 Garden Terrace apartment in the Riverview Gardens complex of North Arlington borough in New Jersey on Wednesday.

It will take at least 8-10 days for the bodies of Balaji Bharat Rudrawar (32) and his wife Arati Balaji Rudrawar (30) to reach India. Their four-year-old daughter is currently with friends of the family in New Jersey.

Arati Balaji Rudrawar was seven months pregnant, her father-in-law told the media.

The county prosecutor’s office said in a press release that local police entered the home and found the couple dead.

Medical examiner’s report awaited
As per report, the husband stabbed his wife in the abdomen as she made unsuccessful attempts to fight him off in the living room.

It has been confirmed that both Balaji Bharat Rudrawar and his wife Arati Balaji Rudrawar had been stabbed.

However, officials are waiting for the medical examiner’s report to determine the exact cause and circumstances of the deaths.

Balaji’s father Bharat Rudrawar, a businessman in Maharashtra, told that neighbours spotted his granddaughter crying alone on the balcony and alerted local police.

Balaji Rudrawar hailed from Ambajogai in Maharashtra’s Beed district. He married his wife Arati in December 2014.

The couple moved to the US in August 2015. While Balaji was employed by an Indian IT company, his wife Arati was a homemaker.
