Man commits suicide after killing wife

Bijnor: A 25-year-old man has committed suicide by jumping in front of a train, after allegedly murdering his newly-wed wife in Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor district, police said today.

The incident happened yesterday afternoon in Khanpur Madho village in the district, when Ankit slit the throat of his 22-year-old wife, Nidhi, with a sharp weapon and fled the spot. His mutilated body was later found nearby on the railway tracks, which signified he was probably run over by a train, an official said.

The couple got married only two-and-a-half months ago, but apparently their relationship turned sour over some marital dispute, the official added.

The two bodies have been sent for post-mortem.
