FARIDKOT – A 22-year-old boy and a 20-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide by hanging themselves from a tree in Nathuwala Jadeed village in Moga. The deceased belonged to the nearby Dhurkot Kalan village. They lovers reportedly committed suicide after the girl’s family fixed her marriage.

The girl was adopted by her paternal uncle. “I was busy making arrangements for my daughter’s marriage when I was told that she was missing from her room. We started to search for her. We were told that the bodies of a young boy and girl were hanging from a tree in the fields of the adjoining village and we rushed there,” he said.

A police officer investigating the case said the deceased belonged to the same community and, hence, had failed to convince their parents to their marriage. A case under Section 174 of CrPc had been registered, said Jai Pal Singh, Assistant Sub-Inspector at the Ajitwal police station.
