The police identified the deceased as Rakesh Deshraj and Munesh Singh, both residents of the same village. They studied at the same coaching centre and often used to go together.

Locals said the duo belonged to different castes and may have committed suicide after failing to convince their parents to consent to their marriage. However, the police haven’t yet found any solid evidence to suggest they were in a relationship.

A case of suicide was registered at the Rewari Police station. Both the victims were residents of Rajpura in Rewari, and were said to be good students. They were taking tuitions for the SSC (Staff Selection Commission) exam.

The motorman of 54411 MNR passenger train spotted the bodies on the track between Jataula and Pataudi wile en route from Rewari to Gurgaon and informed the GRP.

The GRP broke the news to their family members after they called on the victims’ phones and asked them to come and identify their bodies.

Brothers of Rakesh and Munesh told the police that they were preparing for SSC examination and were attending the same coaching centre.

Rakesh was found wearing a blue trouser and a check shirt, while Munesh was wearing a black and red dress and a dark brown scarf.

“No suicide note was found from the spot. Family members said they have no clue why they decided to take the extreme step. Investigation is on,” Parmanand, SHO, GRP police post, said.

The police have not yet been able to establish the reason for suicide.
