Youth, girl commit suicide

Our Correspondent NAOGAON, Apr 20: A young man and his 'girlfriend' have allegedly committed suicide by hanging with the same rope at Chakrajapur village in Manda upazila as their families did not approve of their relations. The deceased were identified as Golam Rabbani, 22, son of Wazed Ali of Chakrajapur village of the upazila, and Taslima Akhter, 18, daughter of late Makbul Sardar of Jangalpara village of the same upazila. Rabbani was sitting for the HSC examination from Satbaria Technical BM College while Taslima appeared at the SSC examination from Enayetpur Ideal High School this year. Family members and locals said Rabbani and Taslima had been in a romantic relation for long but Rabbani's family members did not approve the affairs as the financial condition of Taslima's father is not good. Out of frustration, the youth and the girl killed themselves by hanging from a mango tree in the middle of a beel (water body) any time on Tuesday night. Locals spotted the bodies around 10am on Wednesday and informed police. The law enforcers recovered the bodies and sent those to hospital morgue, said officer-in-charge of Manda Police Station Anisur Rahman.
