VIJAYAWADA: A 21-year-old girl succumbed to her injuries while undergoing treatment at Vijayawada Government General Hospital on Saturday. She had attempted suicide along with her boyfriend by consuming pesticide on Thursday after her parents tried to marry her to someone else against her wish. The condition of the boy is reportedly out of danger.
