New Delhi, Sep 20 (UNI) A young couple allegedly killed themselves in an apparent 'suicide pact' in the Sangam Vihar area of South Delhi.
While Neelu (20) died after being taken to the AIIMS, where he was rushed after he complaint of 'stomach ache' yesterday afternoon, Khushboo (17), his neighbour, died after being admitted to the ESI Hospital following her 'worsened condition', according to police sources.
The boy, a mechanic, complained of 'stomach ache' after having his food at about 1500 hrs, while the girl's condition worsened soon after she broke her Ramzan fast in the evening.
