In a shocking incident, A couple suspected to be involved in an illicit relationship was found dead on the railway tracks near Medchal on Friday morning.
The deceased is identified as M Kavya, 24, and N Nagaraju alias Raju, 25, a private employee residents of Jammigadda in Kapra, Hyderabad.
According to the Police, they were living in the same colony since a year. While Kavya, who is married to an auto rickshaw driver, stayed with her husband and two kids, Nagaraju stayed with his parents and siblings.
“We suspect that as they both stayed in the same colony, they may have developed a friendship, which eventually blossomed into love. They may have decided to get married, but feared the responses of their families and society,” said Nageshwar Reddy, a railway police official.
Police said their families were absolutely clueless about their relationship. The couple was never found together in the colony. They seemed to have not dared to reveal their relationship too.
“They were aware and scared that even if they had eloped and got married elsewhere, their families will not accept it,” Reddy said.
The couple left their homes on Thursday but didn’t return. They are suspected to have committed suicide late night on the railway tracks between Gundlapochampalli and the Medchal railway station.
On Friday, locals found their disfigured bodies and informed the police. The railway police officials issued look-out notices and alerted all the police stations to identify them.
Their bodies were shifted to the Gandhi Hospital and preserved in the morgue. A case was booked and the matter is being investigated.
Police said it was on Saturday that the victims’ families contacted them after finding their lookout notices, which widely publicized in the media.
