Sitapur: After failing to convince their families for their marriage, a couple committed suicide by jumping in front of a train on the outskirts of Gulramau crossing in Mehmoodabad area, Uttar Pradesh Police said.
Virendra Verma (19) and Ranjana (18) were in a relationship but their families did not approve of it, Mehmoodabad inspector Gyanendra Singh said.
