A young man and his girlfriend allegedly hanged themselves from a mango tree with the same rope at Kashipur village in Ranishankoil upazila of Thakurgaon on Wednesday night as their families did not accept their relation.
The victims were Sunil Pal, 24, son of Koikhowa Pal of Bejhurbari Nayapara village in Baliadangi upazila, and Ichha Rani Pal, 21, daughter of Kunthakumar Pal of Choybhagia village in Ranishankoil upazila of the same district.
Quoting locals, Inspector (Investigation) of Ranishankoil Police Station Khairul Islam told this correspondent over cell phone that Sunil and Rani were in a relationship for years.
As their family members did not agree to their decision to marry, they committed suicide by hanging themselves with the same rope from a roadside mango tree around 8:30pm.
On information, police went to the spot, recovered the bodies and sent those to Thakurgaon Sadar Hospital for autopsy.
Two unnatural death cases were filed with Ranishankoil Police Station in this connection, the official said.
