New Delhi: A 24-year-old dance instructor committed suicide after allegedly strangling his suspected lover in the national capital, a police officer said on Wednesday.

Police were alerted around 10 a.m. after locals saw Sachin alias Sonu hanging from a ceiling fan at his dance coaching institute at Chattarpur in south Delhi.

When a police team broke into the institute, they also found the body of Yogita, a 24-year-old girl, with an extension cord around her neck, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Nupur Prasad told IANS.
