Bhadohi (UP), Mar 17 (PTI) A young woman and his lover allegedly committed suicide in Uttar Pradesh's Bhadohi district after opposition by the man's family to their relationship, police said on Wednesday.

Superintendent of Police Ram Badan Singh said Urmila (30) and Vikram Bahadur (24), a resident of Rajgarh district in Nepal, were found hanging from a tree in Gopiganj area on Wednesday.
