Siddipet: Lovers couple committed suicide by hanging self at a classroom of Government School at Lakudaram village of Kondapak Mandal in Siddipet district. The victims were identified as Manje Kanakaiah (21) and Rachakonda Tara (19). Since they were belonging to different castes, they feared that they would not get the acceptance for their marriage from their elders. Kanakaiah and Tara, who left their homes on Wednesday early morning, were found hanging to ceiling in the government schools on Thursday morning.

According to villagers,  the elders in the village have allegedly imposed Rs 30,000 for being in love with a girl from another caste two years ago. However, the duo did not change their minds and they have continued to be in touch with each other. As getting acceptance from the family members looked impossible, the lovers have decided to end their lives on Wednesday. Since they have left their homes on Wednesday morning, the villagers have launched a search for them, but they could find them hanging to the ceiling on Thursday morning as foul smell started emanating out of the second floor of the school building, which remained close in view of summer holidays. A pal of gloom descended on the village as the love story of the youth ended in a tragic note. A case was registered and inquiry is on.
