Ongole: Nine months ago, a Facebook acquaintance between two young people turned into love. Concerns arose as to whether inter-caste marriage would be accepted before the affair went to the attention of the elders.
The young couple, who were not even twenty years old, were crushed on the rails as they attempted suicide. The couple's bodies were found on the tracks on Tuesday near Pellur, a suburb of Ongole, four days ago. Desperate grief remained in the two families who were looking forward to their children's futures with many hopes.
