In a shocking incident which took place on Thursday in Tripura, a young couple, who got married nearly eight months ago committed suicide by hanging themselves. The shocking incident took place at Ambassa, headquarters of Dhalai district in northern Tripura.

According to police sources, a loan burden must have forced the young couple to take the extreme step. A police official said that they have managed to recover the bodies of the two deceased, identified as Pankaj Deb (26) and Papia Das (19) from their thatched house.
