Beldangi March 08, 2010: A girl, in response to her parents not allowing her to marry the boy she loved, committed suicide on Monday afternoon, creating shock for local residents and making the parents regret for what they did.

Pabi Maya Karki of Beldangi II, Sector D4, Hut No 57 hanged her to death in Humse Dumse community forest at around 1:15 this afternoon, Ilaka police post Damak said.

Karki had eloped with her beau Tikaram Timsina from Beldangi I, Sector C1 Hut No 67. The couple had returned to their home after five days.

After their return, the girl’s family rejected the decision of the young love birds to live together. She was forcefully brought back to her parent’s home.

The parents were not available to detail reasons to separate the couple. Timsina is 30 years old and the girl is of the same age.

International Organization of Migration (IOM) generally encourages the youngster of marrying age to tie know before going for resettlement. Encouragement is more for those resettling in Australia, Canada, Norway, Denmark, New Zealand and Netherlands where only handful of Bhutanese are resettled.
