Lovers commit suicide in Gurgaon hotel
A young man and a teenaged girl committed suicide in a state government-run hotel here by consuming a poisonous substance, police said Sunday.
Ashok Kumar, 20, and Jyoti, 18, were found dead at the tourist complex in Sohna, 26 km from Gurgaon city.
Ashok hailed from Gudana village near Pataudi while Jyoti was from Kheri Khumar village in Jhajjar district. Both were unmarried.
The duo had arrived at the hotel around 8.30 p.m. Saturday and booked a room for the night.
"They were relatives of each other and in love. Both consumed salfas tables. They also left a suicide note blaming no one for their taking the extreme step," Anil Kumar, chief of Sohna police station, told IANS.
The one-line suicide note, having signatures of the deceased, read: "Hum apni marji se mar rahe hain (we are dying as per our own choice)."
Jyoti was a B.A. 1st year student at a Rohtak college while Ashok was a school dropout.
