India – In a tragic incident, a 21-year-old woman and her lover, also aged 21, allegedly committed suicide by hanging themselves after her family refused to get her married to him.

The deceased – identified as Jyoti and Pankaj – were residents of Piprauli village in Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura. They were found hanging from a tree near their houses on Sunday. They were in a relationship since last few years, but the woman’s family did not approve of their alliance as the man was their distant relative, police said.
