Two teenaged lovers allegedly committed suicide by hanging themselves from a beam in their room at a guest house, about 30 km from here, police said on Friday.
The deceased were both aged 18 and belonged to different communities.
While the boy was pursuing his BCA degree at Bengaluru, the girl was doing her B.Com at Thiruchengode. Their parents, on knowing about their relationship, had advised them to concentrate on their studies.
On Thursday, they left for Yercaud hills, a tourist centre, after informing their parents that they were going for a friend’s marriage.
They stayed at a guest house at Mookanurkadu in the hills and when they did not come for dinner, a worker, who went to check on them, found their bodies hanging in their room, police said.
