Facing stiff opposition from their family and society to their alleged affair, a woman and her brother-in-law along with her two kids snuffed out their lives, police said here on Sunday.

They allegedly ended their lives by jumping before a goods train near Sahajanwan Railway Station here yesterday. A suicide note recovered from scene said the two were fed up with frequent feuds in their family over their affair, police said.

The dead were Reena, aged 34, her brother-in-law Alok, 30, and her two kids Ritesh (5) and Ashish (4). For the past six years, Alok and Reena were allegedly having an illicit relationship inviting the family's wrath and society's ridicule, police said.
The bodies had been sent for post-mortem.
