Two cousins who were in love with each other but were both married to somebody else allegedly committed suicide by hanging themselves in a hotel room on the outskirts of the city late on Monday.
Kamlesh Manu Parmar (28) and Manisha Ramsinh Parmar (24), both residents of Hadferia village in Halol Taluka of Panchamahals district, were found hanging from a hook in the ceiling of their room in a hotel near Kapurai cross roads at around 8pm. They had checked in the hotel on Monday morning. Staff of the hotel sensed something unusual when the couple did not respond to a call room service at around 7 pm.
Soon, manager of the hotel Gulab Rathva informed Varnama police about the incident. The police broke into the room and found the couple hanging.
In a suicide note, Manisha wrote that they were in love with each other but it was impossible to get sanctity of marriage for their relationship and hence they were ending their lives, police said.
While Kamlesh was father of a boy, Manisha was married to a man in a village in Jambusar taluka of Bharuch district six months ago. However, the marriage had ended in a divorce two months ago when the cousins eloped.
"After some time, they had returned home and came to the city from Champaner on Monday morning," head constable of Varnama police Mangalsinh Solanki said.
On Tuesday, the couple's bodies were handed over to their relatives after post mortem at SSG Hospital in the city.
