Bhojpur lovebirds travel 70km to Patna to end their lives | Patna News


PATNA: A 22-year-old man and his 20-year-old girlfriend travelled over 70km from their houses in Bhojpur district and committed suicide by jumping before a running train near Fatuha railway station in rural Patna on early Tuesday morning.
Police said the two took this step after their family members got them married in different families. Fatuha government rail police station SHO Bharat Ram said Nitu Kumari died on the spot while Deepak Kumar (22) succumbed to his injuries during treatment at the PMCH.
The SHO said the villagers spotted them at around 4.45am. “Both belonged to Karbania under Agiaon Bazaar police station area in Bhojpur. We have come to know that both were having an affair for the last several years. No suicide note was recovered,” he said.
He said Nitu’s family had got her married in May this year but she had been living with her parents. He said Deepak’s family had got him married to another girl last year and he was to become a father within two months.
“Both had eloped from their houses on Monday morning and reached Fatuha. Deepak had reached Ara railway station on a bike. Its keys were found in his trousers. Their family members were already searching for them. Nitu had no belongings with her. Her family members said they had seized her cellphone on Sunday,” the SHO quoted Deepak as saying before he died in the hospital.
The SHO said Deepak had informed his family on Monday evening about them and the bike parked outside Ara railway station. “His Aadhaar card with Bhojpur address and a cellphone were recovered from the spot,” he said.
He said Nitu’s father had submitted a written complaint but neither neither suspected any foul play nor mentioned anything about her affair with Deepak. He said both travelled to Fatuha by a train on Monday evening.
