Agartala, Apr 26: A minor girl and her 21-year-old boyfriend "died consuming poison on being summoned to a police station" in Tripura's Gomati district, an officer stated on Monday, according to news agency PTI.
The duo was summoned last Friday in the wake of a complaint lodged by the 17-year-old girl's father, he said.
Ananda Chakma, a resident of South Tripura's Sabroom subdivision, was in a relationship with the girl from Dhalai district for quite some time, the officer said.

Accordingly, the couple and their parents were summoned on Friday, Officer in Charge (OC) of Silacherra police station, Srikanta Rudrapaul, told PTI on Monday.
"Anticipating trouble, the duo had consumed poison. They threw up inside the police station," he said.
"Both were immediately rushed to hospitals. The girl died on Sunday night at Gomati district hospital, while the boy died at GBP hospital, Agartala, on Monday. No case has been registered in connection with the tragic incident," he added.
