According to a TOI report, the duo got married in January this year. Few weeks after the marriage, the couple started fighting. One of the major reasons for the quarrel reportedly was Sagayaraj's irregularity at work. A few months ago, Sagayaraj mortgaged Jesintha's 2.5 sovereigns of gold jewellery without her knowledge, which raised the dispute between the two.

Fed up with husband's behaviour, Jesintha went to her parents' home in Thanjavur district two months ago. On September 30, Sagayaraj with his parents went to Jesintha's home, comforted her and brought her back. Bihar Double Murder Case: 82-Year-Old Retired Commissioner & His Wife Found Dead in Patna, Investigation Underway.
