Wanted for murder, Chhattisgarh couple ends life in Shimla hotel

Shimla Separate notes of crime confession and suicide found On the run from Chhattisgarh after being booked for the murder of a doctor, a man and a woman committed suicide at a hotel in Shimla early on Monday. The two are Sudeesh Kumar (28) of Durg district and Devi Vaidya (32) of Dhamtari district in Chhattisgarh.

Sudeesh was the private secretary of Congress leader Lekh Ram Sahu, the MLA of Kurud constituency in Dhamtari district, while Devi was also a political worker.They had been staying at Hotel Flora in Shimlas Lakkar Bazaar area near the Mall Road since June 19.According to the police, both had consumed poison and Devi called up the reception to seek medical help early in the morning. Both were rushed to the Indira Gandhi Medical College and Hospital where Sudeesh was declared dead on arrival, while Devi died later.

Superintendent of Police R M Sharma said: A suicide note signed by Sudeesh was recovered from the hotel room. He also left another note, confessing that he had planned the murder of Dr Avinash Ramteke and got it executed by his hired men in May. He said a postmortem had been conducted and the families of the deceased were on their way to claim the bodies.
According to the police, Devi was engaged to Ramteke and their families had fixed their wedding for earlier this year, but Devi was not in favour of it. Sudeesh had Devi secretly got married in February, they said.

While Avinash went missing on May 10, mutilated parts of his body were found in the forests of Dhamtari on May 31.
Talking to The Indian Express over phone, Durg Superintendent of Police Amit Kumar said Sudeesh and Devi had been booked under Sections 302, 201, 120 (b) and 365 of the IPC for abducting and killing Dr Avinash Ramteke.

Three of their accomplices were already arrested. The Chhattisgarh police had failed to locate the two in the state.
There have been a number of cases of couples committing suicide in Shimla hotels in the past. Earlier this year, IIT student Pragati Tibrewal was allegedly murdered in a hotel by her boyfriend Gaurav Verma, while a tourist from Punjab murdered his wife by pushing her off a cliff at Charabra near Kufri.
