Woman ends life over 'harassment' by husband

A 26-year-old woman committed suicide by hanging at her house in Ideal Homes, BEL Layout, Rajarajeshwari  Nagar Tuesday night.

Deceased Manjula’s husband Girish was arrested after her family filed a dowry harassment complaint against him.

Police said the couple was engaged in a quarrel around 11 pm on Tuesday. Soon, Girish walked out taking along their one-and-half-year-old son. Thereafter, depressed Manjula hanged herself.

Girish found the deceased after he returned home after some time. Girish owns a cloth store in Rajarajeshwari Nagar.

His wife was often moody and quarreled over trivial issues, Girish said in his statement to the police.

On Tuesday night, she was shouting at him as the boy was crying. Girish then went out with the child. Soon after he returned, he found the door locked and there was no response from Manjula.

When he looked through the window, he found Manjula hanging from the ceiling. As  the door was broken into, a suicide note was found where Manjula stated she was taking the extreme step due to Girish and his family members.
