Young couple commits suicide after parents object to match
Nabarangpur: A young couple committed suicide by hanging themselves to a tree in Chhotaguda village under Chikalpadar panchayat in the district after their parents disapproved the relationship over caste.
The deceased have been identified as Indra Ganda and Susheela Kalar of the same village.
As per the report, Indra happened to be a member of tribal community whereas Susheela was a General Caste girl. While the duo wanted to tie the knot after a few months’ relationship being from different community became a bone of contention between their families.
Realising that their parents wouldn’t let them get married, the couple went to the bank of a pond located in the village and hung them from a tree with the girl’s stole.
Some locals called up police and reported the matter after spotting the hanging bodies this morning.
Police have rushed the deceased for autopsy and an investigation is underway in the case.
