A heartbroken India-born doctor in the UK has reportedly committed suicide after his parents, citing cultural differences, disapproved of his plan to marry his British fiancee and fellow physician, who also did not agree to a Hindu wedding.
Bangalore-born anaesthetist Madhu Honnaiah, 33, swallowed drugs from Singleton Hospital in Swansea where he worked after splitting with fiancee Dr Emma Wrighton.
An inquest heard his parents had objected to his engagement to British-born Wrighton, 32, who had refused to have a Hindu wedding, the Daily Mail reported.
Honnaiah was alone when he injected himself with two drugs used in surgery seven months after their split.
The inquest heard Honnaiah had begun a relationship with fellow doctor Wrighton in 2008 while working in Liverpool. Wrighton then got a job in Australia but the pair stayed in touch - and moved in together when she returned to Britain.
The two doctors got engaged in 2010, though Honnaiah didn't inform his parents, the report said.
Investigating officer Huw Evans told the inquest that Honnaiah was wary of telling his parents about the relationship because of their "cultural beliefs."
The inquest heard that Honnaiah suggested a Hindu wedding to his fiancee, but she wouldn't agree because a wedding date had already been set aside.
The couple broke up in September 2010 and Honnaiah moved to Swansea in January 2011.
