The two consume poison within a day of entering into wedlock

TIRUPATI: In a shocking incident, a couple committed suicide by consuming poison within a day after entering into wedlock.

The manager of the hotel in which they stayed, complained to the Tirupati urban police after repeatedly knocking at the door on Monday morning.

Desaiah (33) and Muneeswari (16), both hailing from Renigunta near here, got married at Tirumala last Saturday and stayed in a lodge in Nehru Street here, close to the APSRTC bus station. They killed themselvesin the early hours of Monday.

Earlier marriage

According to Urban Circle Inspector N. Sudhakar Reddy, Desaiah had three daughters through his first wife, who had committed suicide some time ago unable to tolerate his extramarital affairs.

Strangely enough, Desaiah had approached the Renigunta police three months ago with a request to conduct his wedding with Muneeswari, but the police chased him away on the grounds that he had already been married.

The bodies of the couple were shifted to the SVRR Government General Hospital for post mortem.
