Nirmal: A couple committed suicide by jumping into Godavari river as they were depressed over their infertility near the temple town of Basar on Thursday. The couple came to the inter-district bridge and leaped into the river. Their bodies have been fished out.
Basar Sub-Inspector K Raju said the deceased were Meshetti Santosh (24) and his wife Meshetti Ranjana (22), residents of Takli village in Basar.
Santosh and Ranjana resorted to the extreme step after they were disheartened since they didn’t have children even after completion of three years of their marriage. Ranjana tried to follow different methods to conceive but in vain, a relative said.
Based on a complaint, a case of suspicious death was registered and investigations are on. Post-mortem of the bodies was held at Mudhole government hospital.
