A 22-year-old man and a teenaged girl with whom he was having an affair allegedly consumed poison in Bhajanpura here on Thursday as their families were opposed to their relationship. Their condition is said to be stable.
According to the police, Gulshan, a resident of Bhajanpura, called the girl to his house in the afternoon and the two allegedly consumed poison. They have been admitted to Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital.
The girl had eloped with the boy a few months ago. Gulshan was arrested after the girl's family lodged a complaint with the police and was recently released on bail.
