An Indian woman committed suicide two months after she got married. Her lover took his own life alongside her.
The incident happened in the city of Gharaunda, Karnal, Haryana.
It was revealed that they jumped in front of a goods train due to their illicit relationship.
The unnamed man lived in the city while the woman was a resident of a nearby village.
Both were married during their affair. The man had been married for four years while the woman tied the knot in March 2020.
According to the police, the man had an affair with his wife’s niece.
It is believed that they took their own lives after their families found out about the affair.
They had been missing since April 28, 2020. It was discovered that they jumped in front of a goods train on May 3.
Family members heard about the suicides and rushed to the spot. They identified the bodies and informed the Government Railway Police (GRP).
GRP in-charge Tarachand explained that both families have stated that they will not register a case regarding the incident.
Both bodies were sent for a post-mortem before they were handed over to the relatives.
There have been numerous cases of lovers committing suicide before or shortly after marriage.
In one instance, an Indian woman from Karnal took her own life just days before her wedding.
It was also discovered that the young woman’s lover committed suicide.
The young woman was set to get married on March 12, 2020, but she did not want to go through with it. Therefore, she and her lover decided to take their own lives.
The Government Railway Police (GRP) learnt that a 20-year-old man had been on an English speaking course when he got to know a young woman from another village.
They took a liking to one another and they eventually began a relationship.
Despite meeting regularly, the couple could not marry as their parents would not allow it. They belonged to different castes.
Meanwhile, the girl’s parents arranged for her to get married on March 12, 2020.
The girl did not want to get married to another man.
A police investigation revealed that the only person she wanted to marry was her lover, however, she knew that their different castes prevented them from doing so. She then decided to take her own life.
On Tuesday, March 3, 2020, the young woman sneaked out of her home and met with her boyfriend.
They agreed to take their own lives since they could not get married. The lovers went to a railway track and jumped in front of a train.
At around 10 pm, the young man’s body was discovered near Bhaini Khurd village by a passerby who then alerted the GRP. The bodies were identified and both families were told.
They reached the railway track and confirmed that the deceased were their relatives.
Investigators believe that the man and woman left their homes at around 7 pm to meet.
