A case had been registered against the youth under Sections 363 and 366 of the IPC at the Nakodar City police station a week ago.

Absconding from  , both were seen by residents at Phillaur last night.

Earlier thought to be in an inebriated condition, the duo fell unconscious in public view last night following which the police were informed. They were rushed to CMC, Ludhiana, where both of them died late in the night.

SHO, Nakodar City police station, Jatinder Singh said, “The duo had been absconding for the past one week. While the girl’s parents had lodged an FIR, the two were nowhere to be found. But last evening we got reports that a couple was found in Phillaur. They were hiding away from their families. It is there that they apparently consumed some poisonous substance. The FIR against the youth was also lodged by the girl’s parents about a week ago at our police station.”

After the postmortem, the body of the girl was handed over to her parents and her last rites were conducted today.

The SHO said the youth’s body was kept at the hospital. After the postmortem, his body would be handed to his parents tomorrow. The postmortem report of the girl is awaited.
