Balangir: A couple attempted to commit suicide by consuming poison ahead of the girl’s marriage in Kumiapali village under Balangir Sadar police limits near here last night, as the families of the duo rejected their marriage proposal.

While the boy has been identified as Subash Puta of Antapali village the girl happens to be a residence of Kumiapali village and a +2 Final Year student.

The couple who was in a relationship for past few years faced strong resistance from their family members for being from different castes. While Subash’s father rejected their marriage proposal very early, the girl’s family fixed her marriage with another man from a neighbouring village a few days ago.

After knowing about the development Subash reached the girl’s village at around 11 AM last night while the latter’s family was busy in preparations for the marriage which was scheduled for today. After, calling the girl to a secluded place near Kumiapali High School covertly, Subash consumed poison with her.

Girl’s family members rushed the duo to Balangir Sadar Hospital and then shifted to VIMSAR in Burla due to deteriorating condition later in the night.

Meanwhile, Balangir Sadar Police have reached the girl’s village and started investigation into the incident.
