The daughter-in-law of a corporator committed suicide by hanging at her parental house in Sahakar Nagar in Kodigehalli, North Bengaluru, on January 18.

Monica (30) was married to corporator Balakrishna’s son Karthik in 2009, and the couple has two children. Due to disputes within the family, Monica moved back to her parents’ home nine months ago, the police said.

BJP corporator Balakrishna represents the Yelachenahalli ward.  

According to the police, Monica, on Friday afternoon, called up her friend Jayal Verma to discuss her problems. The police suspect she may have taken the extreme step after the call to Verma.

The incident came to light when Verma came to Monica’s house to check on her as she was not responding to his calls.

Locksmith summoned

Verma repeatedly rang the doorbell and when there was no response, he brought a locksmith and broke open the door to find Monica hanging from the ceiling fan, the police said. There was no suicide note, they added.

Verma rushed Monica to Columbia Asia Hospital around 4.55 pm and informed her parents. Doctors declared her brought dead and informed the jurisdictional Kodigehalli police, who made preliminary inquires.

The police have taken up a case of unnatural death and are investigating.
