Vadodara: Bodies of a love-lorn couple, who committed suicide in the forests of Shivrajpur in Panchmahal district sometime on Sunday, were spotted on Monday morning at around 7am by some persons who had gone into the forest. They informed the girl’s family as well as police who believe that they may have taken the extreme step fearing their relationship will not culminate in marriage.
The youth identified as Vinod Baria (22) and the woman as Urvashi Baria (22), both residents of the Pandol village of Halol taluka in Panchmahal district were found hanging from the same tree near Bamankuva. Cops said they may have possibly killed themselves sometime after midnight. The bodies were sent to the Halol referral hospital for autopsy.
Sources said that the duo was from the same caste and were from the same locality. As per local traditions, these facts would make them unsuitable for matrimony, which made them take the extreme step.
