HYDERABAD: Dejected over the rejection of her marriage proposal by a Hyderabadi software professional she had loved, a woman from Bangalore committed suicide by consuming poison in his guesthouse room at Madhapur on Monday night, the police said.

Sruthi, 23, was lying dead in the room when Pavan Kumar, employee of Tata Consultancy Services, returned to his room in Carpet Homes Guest House from office around 7.30 p.m., the Madhapur police station Inspector N. Bhujanga Rao told reporters. “It is learnt that Sruthi fell in love with Kumar but her marriage plans received a setback, as Kumar was shifted to Hyderabad,” the Inspector explained.
