Harassed by husband, woman jumps into pond

A woman has committed suicide allegedly by jumping into a pond at Koorgalli in Vijayanagar police limits.

Asha (21) wife of Suresh Babu, is the deceased. According to police, Asha who was last seen on Sunday by her neighbours, may have taken the extreme step on that day itself. The body was found in a decomposed state on Tuesday.

He had forced abortion a few months ago and elders at the village had convened a panchayat. The duo had been ordered to bury differences. Suresh Babu who had repeated his behaviour, had let his wife starve on several occasions.

Meanwhile, Suresh Babu is absconding.
