Two hanging bodies of a teenage boy and a girl of Santal community were recovered at Gopinagar village in Patnitala upazila here on Saturday.
The deceased were identified as Joy Hembrom, 16, son of Sudhir Hembrom and Kajli Murmu, 18, daughter of Francis Murmu in the area.
Joy was a class X student of Nojipur High School while Kajli was a 12th grader of Nojipur Mohila College.
Parimal Chandra, officer-in-charge of Patnitala Police Station, said being informed by locals, police recovered the bodies of Joy and Kajli hanging from a mango tree near the Eidgah ground at Gopinagar village around 11 am.
Joy had love affair with Kajli, said the OC adding that they might have ‘hanged themselves’ as their parents refused to accept the relationship.
However, family sources said they know nothing about any love affair between them.
Joy’s father Sudhir Hembrom said Joy never informed them about his relationship.
Sudhir Hembrom filed a case.
