Suicide victims were suspected of having affair
NEW DELHI: A day after a man and a woman committed suicide inside a hotel in west Delhi's Rajouri Garden, police have found that they were relatives and the reason being their suicide was their relationship being seen as illicit by their family.
According to police, the deceased man was an engineer, while the woman was working as a nurse and was his brother's wife.

The man had recently got a new job in Jaipur, for which he had came to Delhi from Kerala. Both were reportedly depressed by the slander that their relatives had thrown upon them.
"We questioned several persons in this regard, after which we came to know of the reason, which we suspect made them take the extreme step," said a police official.
