Homemaker ends life

A homemaker was allegedly found dead at her house in Devarjeevanahalli on Monday.

Pooja, 23, a resident of Nagamma Layout, hanged herself around 12 noon, police said. She had married Siddesh, a native of Sakleshpura and a worker at a printing press, five years ago. Siddesh was away at work when the incident happened.

Dowry harassment

In a complaint to the police, Pooja’s parents alleged that harassment for dowry had forced their daughter to end her life. They claimed that they had already paid dowry in the form of ornaments and cash to Siddesh during their wedding. “However, Siddesh used to harass Pooja for more. She hanged herself as she could no longer bear his torture,” they said.
Police have taken Siddesh into custody.
