Bride commits suicide 3 days before her wedding

The couple, married for the last six years, had a fight after Shabiha slapped their three-year-old who refused to have food. When her husband Nazir went out with the child, a depressed Shabiha allegedly took the extreme step.

Native of Jharkhand, they were working at a garment factory. Nazir came to Bangalore six years ago while Shabiha had moved to the City with the boy in 2008. Sources said, the couple, who were in good terms, used to leave the child with a caretaker in the neighbourhood before leaving for work. Peenya police have registered a case of suicide.

In another incident, a 22-year-old bride ended her life, just three days before her wedding.
Kasturi, daughter of a retired ITI employee, was engaged to a distant relative. A second PU passout, the girl had initially agreed to the proposal. Sources said, three days ago, she suddenly changed her mind. When her father sought to know the reason, she did not give a convincing reply. On Thursday night she hanged herself from the ceiling of her house. Srirampuram police have filed a case.
