A 21-year-old engineering student allegedly smothered his 19-year-old wife to death before committing suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling fan at his residence in Tighra village, on Sohna Road on Monday.

The deceased were identified as Gajender Gujjar alias Tinku and his wife Meenakshi. They were married three years ago and often fought over petty issues.

Gajender allegedly left behind a suicide note, which blames his in-laws for interfering in his personal life and harassing him. He also apologized to his parents for taking the extreme step.

Gajender was a final year student of Manav Rachna Engineering College in Faridabad and would have graduated in four months while Meenakshi was a graduate from the Gurgaon government college. Since their marriage, they reportedly did not get along well. Though their families tried to unite them but things were never resolved.
