VILLUPURAM: The love story of a 22-year-old man and woman in Tamil Nadu ended in a tragedy with the woman committing suicide and her family members allegedly killing her lover. 

Aruna of Kottakuppam in Villupuram, who was in love with Raghahavan from Periyakottakuppam, hanged herself on Sunday after her family decided to get her married to another person, said a Times of India report.

Her boyfriend Raghavan, 22, who was working in a quarry near Hyderabad, slit his wrists when he heard of her suicide. Villupuram superintendent of police S Jeyakumar said an eight-man gang led by Aruna's uncle, Padmanabhan, had murdered Raghavan when he was sent home by his employer.

The SP said Padmanabhan, Aruna’s brother, Arun Kumar, and her cousins, Praveen Kumar and Ranjith Kumar, and four others hatched a plot to murder Raghavan after she committed suicide. They convinced Raghavan's friend, P Sanjay, 20, to bring him to Kottakuppam on Monday.

When Sanjay brought him to the designated spot along with another friend, Sivanesan, the gang of eight on four motorcycles attacked Sivanesan and abducted Raghavan. They took him to a secluded spot behind a temple at Kottamedu and hacked Raghavan to death. They gang then doused the body with petrol and set it ablaze.

Kottakuppam police registered a case following a complaint from Sivanesan and arrested all the accused except Padmanabhan.
