When Vani went out for some work, Bhavya locked herself in the house and set herself on fire, the police said. The police are probing into the incident. 

Woman found deadA 23-year-old woman was found hanging at her residence in Sunkadakatte. The Kamakshipalya police said the victim, Latha, was from Chunchanahalli near Adichunchanagiri. She was married to Pradeep, an auto driver from Kenchapur, seven months ago.  

When Pradeep returned home he found her hanging. In the note that she had left behind, Latha has not held anybody responsible for her death, the police said. 

However, her parents alleged that she took the extreme step owing to harrassment by Pradeep. The probe is on.
