A 21-year-old man and his teenage girlfriend allegedly committed suicide in Akkenepalli village, Nalagonda district, police said on Tuesday.

Police believe since the two belonged to different castes, they felt that their parents would not agree to their marriage and this might have led them to take the extreme step.

Police suspect that the duo possibly consumed a pesticide to end their lives.

The duo, identified as Ramesh, an autorickshaw driver, and his lover Prasanna (18), a class XII student at a junior college, were found roaming around a temple on Monday in the area, police told PTI.

However, the two, belonging to Dhomalapalli village, were found dead this morning near the temple, police said.

The villagers informed the police after spotting their bodies.
