New Delhi: Heartbroken at the death of his wife, Manikarnika Kumari in a road accident, Yogesh Kumar, 36, a resident of UP’s Hardoi, ended his life on Tuesday. Yogesh was a teacher and the two had got married six months ago.


The police said Yogesh had left behind a note that read: “We will live together and die together,” NDTV reported.

Manikarnika died in an accident on the Lucknow-Hardoi highway under the Sursa police station area on Monday. Sursa Station House Officer (SHO), Indresh Kumar Yadav, said an unidentified vehicle knocked Manikarnika off her scooter while she was driving to Tadiyawana Primary Health Centre, where she was employed as a nurse, the report added.

SHO Yadav told NDTV that her husband was informed after she was identified with the help of her identity card and mobile number.

Yogesh reached the spot, took his wife’s belongings before returning home, and locked himself in a room. Their neighbour, who came to condole the demise of his wife, knocked on the door and on receiving no response, broke the door and found Yogesh hanging from the ceiling.

He then informed the police and the body was sent for post-mortem, the report added.
