A jilted lover allegedly killed a 21-year-old girl and later committed suicide in Subash Tekdi locality at Ulhasnagar town, police said on Tuesday.

The victim Pooja Bhalerao was set to get married on June 1 and her parents were out shopping when the accused 23-year-old Aakash Sonawane came to her house around 9 PM and stabbed her to death at her house in Amrapali Nagar.

At the time of the incident her brother was at home in the next room but came to know about the killing after some time when he found both of them lying dead in a pool of blood.

According to Vitthalwadi police in Ulhasnagar, Akash was in love with Pooja and wanted to marry her, but she did not reciprocate his feelings. They suspect that when Akash learnt that Pooja's parents had fixed her marriage, he visited her house and stabbed her to death before killing himself with the same knife.

Both were the residents of the same locality.

Last month, she borrowed money from friends to get a facelift at a clinic in Bandra. “I was tired of looking fat. My marriage and work life were being affected and that’s when I decided to lose weight. I nearly starved and lost all the extra kilos but I ended up looking much older,” said Anita, who spent Rs75,000 on the cosmetic procedure.
