NEW DELHI: A day after the bodies of a man and a woman were found in a hotel room in west Delhi's Rajouri Garden, the police today said the two allegedly committed suicide as their family members put pressure on them to end their illicit relationship.

Yesterday, the bodies of K Suresh (29), a native of Alappuzha in Kerala, and the woman were found from the hotel room.

The duo had checked into the hotel as husband and wife.

The woman had not been identified till yesterday.

Today, she was identified as the wife of one of Suresh's cousins.

The 27-year-old woman was a nurse at the RML Hospital here, the police said, adding that she stayed with her husband in Nawada.

Suresh had left Kerala on October 13 and arrived in Delhi on October 15, the police said.

He had then gone to Jaipur, where he had got a job as an engineer. He had come back to Delhi for Diwali.

On the day of the festival, the woman and Suresh were seen together. The husband of the woman and other members of the family suspected that the two were having an affair. A quarrel had ensued and both of them were asked to end their affair, the police said.

It is suspected that the duo took the extreme step due to the humiliation.

They had booked the hotel room online, the police said, adding that in a suicide note written in Malayalam, Suresh had apologised to his mother for taking the extreme step.

Suresh and his sister-in-law had gagged themselves with cellulose tape. It is suspected that they had consumed a poisonous substance before putting the gags on.

The post-mortem report is awaited.
