Udaipur : A 25-year old woman who had eloped with her lover from Jodhpur a week ago was found hanging from the ceiling fan of a hotel in Surajpole area of Udaipur city on Wednesday. The couple had checked in the hotel on March 31 and had registered themselves as husband and wife, however, the woman was already married to someone else and had a 2-year old daughter, cops said. Police is in search of her lover who is missing since the incident. The woman’s family arrived Udaipur on Thursday and claimed the body after autopsy.
According to the police, one Ashok Suthar and Divya Vaishnav both residents of Jodhpur had eloped and come to Udaipur last month. They were staying at a guest house in Surajpole for 8 days. “ Divya was already married and her family was against her relationship with Ashok. They had even pressurized Divya to lodge a case of abduction and rape against Ashok in a Jodhpur police station and the latter had taken anticipatory bail in connection with the case” Heramb Joshi, SHO Surajpole police station said. Divya who had left her home and daughter was perhaps under tremendous guilt and stress and therefore committed suicide on Wednesday when Ashok had gone to look for work. When he came back and found the door of their room latched with Divya not answering to his calls, he peeped through the window and saw her hanging. The terrified man left the hotel after reporting this to the hotel staff and have not been seen since, police said. The autopsy report confirmed death to be a suicide, however, we are looking for Ashok who is the only person who can tell about the real reason behind Divya’s death, Joshi said.
