Believe it or not, five friends in Odisha attempted suicide together for one girl.
As per reports, five youths were in love with a girl and they didn’t know that they were in love with the same girl. When they realised it, the obsessed lovers decided to consume poison to sacrifice for each other. In case anyone survives, he would stand a chance to marry the girl, sources said.
The love-struck youths prepared a toxic paste of marijuana, vermilion and peruviana (Kaniyara in Odia) seeds and gulped down the deadly substance. When they started vomiting, they were rushed to Bari Community Health Centre (CHC) in a critical condition.
When their condition further deteriorated, the five youths—Ashok Mallick (20), Kuna Mallick (20), Rashmi Mallick (19), Alok Mallick (18) and Goutam Mallick (16) from Jorakula village in Kalamatia panchayat under Bari block in Jajpur district were shifted to District Headquarters Hospital (DHH) in a critical condition.
