Lovers commit suicide on Parkarma of Sri Harmandar Sahib by consuming poison. Many devotees were shocked after seeing the bodies of the couple.
The man named Amritpal Singh had an affair with his sister in law and the parents and in laws both disapproved. The two run away with each other despite the Amritpal having a child.
The two for some reason decided to commit suicide at Sri Harmandir Sahib.
A 20-year-old woman and her lover allegedly committed suicide in the periphery of the Sri Harmandir Sahib here by consuming some poisonous substance this evening, police said.
Kirandeep Kaur and Amritpal Singh (30), residents of Batala town of Gurdaspur district, were missing since last one year.
Their family members had earlier reported the matter to police about them going missing.
Police said that according to preliminary investigations the deceased were in a relationship but their families disapproved of it, which forced the couple to leave their hometown a year back.
A case has been registered in this regard and the matter is being investigated, police said, adding, that the incident was reported to them by the SGPC (Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee).
