A married man had to pay a heavy price for chatting on the insta messaging mobile application, WhatsApp, after his wife came to know about his relationship with his girlfriend. 27-year-old Shiva Kumar and his girlfriend Venella committed suicides after the former’s wife found out about their relationship.
Quoting police, a report by news agency IANS said that while Shiva Kumar committed suicide on Saturday in Maredpally in Secunderabad, the twin city of Hyderabad, his 19-year-old girlfriend too consumed acid the same day. She was brought to the government-run Gandhi Hospital on Sunday, but she could not be saved.
Kumar reportedly committed suicide by hanging when he was alone in the house. He had married Lahari only last month but remained in touch with his girlfriend even after the marriage. Both Venella and Kumar were reportedly childhood friends.
On Saturday, Lahari found out about Kumar’s affair with his girlfriend and she threatened to report the matter to the family members.
Soon after Kumar’s death became a public knowledge, the locals began to blame Venella for his suicide. This, according to reports, pushed the 19-year-old girl into depression, forcing her to end her own life.
Lahari had chided her husband for speaking to his girlfriend in the past too. But he continued to stay in touch with her.
