13 days after attempting suicide, woman dies

A 30-year-old woman, who attempted suicide by consuming different pills nearly two weeks ago, succumbed on Monday in Byatrayanapura.

The victim, Radha, had attempted to end her life 13 days ago as she was unable to bear the torture by her husband, who suspected her fidelity, her family members told the police.

Preliminary investigation revealed that Radha, a resident of Nayandahalli, was married to Anand, a coconut vendor, and the couple had a four-year-old daughter. It is said Anand suspected her fidelity and used to beat her up.

Radha, who was fed up with Anand's accusations, consumed numerous pills at one go and attempted suicide. Some neighbours, who saw Radha lying motionless, rushed her to a nearby hospital. The hospital staff had alerted the police. After battling for life for nearly two weeks, Radha died on Monday morning.

The Byatrayanapura police have taken up a case and are questioning Anand to probe if he had abetted the crime, and are investigating further.
