KANDAHAR (Pajhwok): Two lovers, a man and a girl, have committed suicide by consuming poison in the Panjwayee district of southern Kandahar province, an official said on Thursday.

Provincial police spokesman, Zia Durrani told Pajhwok Afghan News the lovebirds ended it all late on Wednesday when they consumed poison. They were evacuated to Mirwais Hospital in Kandahar City.

But both breathed their last in hospital. Durrani had no more details of the incident. But local residents said the two had been in love, an affair that led to their extreme act.

Sadiqullah, a resident of the area, said the man and the girl loved each other, but families opposed their marriage. The man and the girl, disappointed by their failure to marry, committed suicide, he claimed.
