Ranchi: A married man and his paramour on Sunday committed suicide in Jharkhand’s Latehar district after the man’s wife disapproved of their relationship, police said.
According to the police, Ajay Singh, 23, a resident of Latehar’s Lundi village, was in love with Sugani, 21, of the same village.
He took Sugani home a few days ago. Angry, Ajay’s wife left for her parents’ house.
Ajay went to his in-law’s house on Saturday and convinced his wife to return with him.
Upon finding that Sugani was still in their house, Ajay’s wife quarrelled with him.
Ajay and Sugani left the house on Saturday afternoon and committed suicide on Sunday by hanging from a tree.
