A love couple leaped to death from the fourth floor of a prominent mall allegedly over a tiff about their affair here on Sunday, police said.

Vinod Ravikumar (24) and B Sridevi (19), both the employees of the mall and natives of Bidar in Karnataka and Nepal respectively who had been in a love-affair for quite some time, jumped down from the fourth floor of the building at around 9 am, they said.

Vinod died on the spot while Sridevi succumbed to her injuries in a corporate hospital, a police officer said.

On the basis of a suicide note purportedly written by Vinod, an investigating officer said that Vinod was jilted over Sridevi’s friendly relation with another young man.

“In the suicide note Vinod said he will kill the girl for neglecting him,” the investigating officer said.

We suspect Vinod might have pushed the girl down before ending his life. However, there are no eye-witnesses to prove that the girl was pushed, he said.

Sridevi was staying with her sister in Rahamath Nagar while Vinod was a resident of Jagathgirigutta here. Both the bodies were sent for post-mortem and further investigations were underway.
