Woman found hanging

A 28-year-old woman was found hanging at her house in Kollapuradamma Layout, Sunkadakatte, Friday afternoon.

The deceased has been identified as Shobha, hailing from Huliyurudurga. Shobha was married to Ravishankar six years ago.

The couple have a five-year-old son Harsha. Ravishankar, an unemployed, is said to be a chronic alcoholic and Shobha, who worked at a garment factory was the sole breadwinner of the family. Police said Ravishankar was harassing Shobha for money.

Ravishankar found Shobha hanging, dead, in the house on Friday afternoon. Mallesh, elder brother of Shobha, in his statement to the tahsildar has alleged that Ravishankar was harassing his sister for more dowry and that this had driven her to commit suicide.
Kamakshipalya police have registered a case against Ravishankar and arrested him. Autopsy was conducted at Victoria Hospital.
