An IT professional Sushma, 21, who was working as a software engineer in Dallas, US, committed suicide there on Thursday, according to her relatives. Hailing from the Police Colony of Chittoor, she and Bharath, also a software engineer of Bandarlapalli village under Puthalapattu Mandal in the district, fell in love and their marriage was fixed for March 3.
Sources say all arrangements were made for their marriage in the US but suddenly the bride, Bharat, reportedly cancelled the alliance. Dejected over the refusal of the groom and failure of their love, Sushma reportedly ended her life.
Her family members lodged a complaint with Chittoor police holding Bharat responsible for her death. Chittoor DSP N Sudhakar Reddy said they were getting the legal opinion on what can be done as the incident took place in America.
