A nurse working at the Employees State Insurance (ESI) hospital, Rajajinagar, ended her life allegedly by injecting poison.

The deceased, identified as Bindu G G, 27 was a native of Challakere in Chitradurga district and was employed as a nurse at the ESI hospital for the past four years.

According to police, both of Bindu’s parents had passed away recently. 
Bindu was staying in a paying guest accommodation in Adarsha Layout, Basaveshwaranagar.

Residents of the PG house noticed that Bindu was occupying the common bathroom for a long time.

When she did not answer their calls, they broke open the door and found her lying unconscious on the floor. They immediately rushed her to a private hospital nearby. However, she passed away later that evening after all efforts to revive her failed.

Sources in the police said a syringe and a needle was found in the bathroom. A purported suicide note was also found, in which Bindu wrote that she was ending her life unable to bear the grief over the death of her parents. The note also reportedly stated that she alone was responsible for her death.

Unknown poison

Police collected the syringe and needle as evidence and sent them for further examination to the Forensic Science Laboratory.

According to D C Rajappa, DCP (West), police are still uncertain as to the nature of the substance Bindu injected into her body, causing her death.
“The forensic report and the autopsy report may shed more light on the cause of death,” he said. He suspected that as a nurse, Bindu may have had access to poison.

An autopsy was conducted at Victoria Hospital before the body was handed over to Bindu’s younger brother.

Newlywed ends life

A 21-year-old woman married for four months committed suicide unable to bear the alleged dowry harassment, at her Agrahalli house in Thalaghattapura, on Sunday.
According to police, Shashikala, a native of Somanahalli on Kanakapura Road was married to Chikkavenkata Gowda, an employee at a private firm.

Gowda and his parents allegedly harassed Shashikala demanding more dowry. The girl would call her parents saying that she was being subjected to physical and mental torture, police said.

On Sunday evening, when everybody was at home, Shashikala went into a room and locked herself up. Gowda knocked on the door after some time, but there was no response. He broke open the door and found his wife hanging from the ceiling fan.
Shashikala was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was declared dead on arrival. No death note was left behind by her. 

Police arrested Gowda, his parents and two brothers based on a complaint by the victim’s parents.
