When they reached the rails, both the mother and daughter immediately jumped in front of a fast-moving goods train. The two deceased were then taken away by the local police for autopsy.

No suicide note has been found, so the authorities were questioning Rajrani’s family members about the underlying reason for her extreme actions.

It turned out her husband Nanbudh didn’t allow their daughter to marry a man who frequented their house. Disappointment and desperation might lead to the extreme step of the mother-daughter duo.

However, this was just a preliminary investigation. Further details would be announced after the autopsy report.
