Couple commits suicide due to extreme poverty

Mahottari: At a time when leaders of political parties are holding talks in luxurious hotels and resorts in the name of resolving disputable issues among them, a couple struggling to cope with extreme poverty, committed suicide at Birta-3 in Mohattari district on Saturday night.

According to police, the deceased have been identified as Bindeshwor Chaudhary (23) and his wife Rinku Chauudhary (20). Police said that the couple committed suicide by consuming poison (pesticide) last night.

Reports quoted Police as saying that the incident came to light Sunday morning after locals broke open the door as the couple who had gone for sleep after dinner last night, did not open the door even after repeated knocks. Their body was found lying on the ground at the room.

Police informed that although the reason behind the suicide could not be ascertained, extreme poverty might have been the reason behind the act.
