Some believe that love is worth dying for. Twenty-year-old Reshmi from Telangana's Vikarabad was in a relationship with Nawaz, four years her senior. They were distant cousins, and the woman was unsure if her family would agree to their marital alliance. And then, on Tuesday, she came to know that they were planning to marry her off to another.
Reshma preferred death over a life without Nawaz, and so she drank pesticide. Nawaz rushed to the hospital as soon as he heard about the incident, and the sight of his girlfriend lying in such a critical conduction was more than he could bear. Grief-stricken, he drank pesticide too.
