Hyderabad: A couple allegedly committed suicide by hanging themselves to a tree in Daulatabad Village near Vikarabad in the wee hours of Monday. According to police, the bodies of Praveen Kumar (20) and Manjula (19) were found hanging from a tree in a field located on the village outskirts. Kumar and Manjula, both residents of Polkampally Village, were in love for the last couple of years, police said.
Kumar was working in a factory in the city while Manjula completed her intermediate and was staying at home. On Monday morning, the Daulatabad police received information about the bodies of two persons, including a woman, hanging from the tree. The bodies were then shifted to a local government hospital for autopsy.
Daulatabad Circle Inspector Shankar said the couple took the extreme step as their parents did not approve their love and refused to permit their marriage. “Though they had informed their families about their relationship, their parents refused to accept it. They must have felt helpless and committed suicide,” he said. Based on a complaint given by relatives, police have booked a case and investigation is on.
