Homemaker hangs self

A 32-year-old mother  allegedly ended her life by hanging herself from the ceiling fan at her house in Hanumantha Nagar here late on Wednesday night, police said.

Divya I, 32, who was married to Shashidhar, a grocer and native of Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh, was found dead by her father, Indushekhar. The couple have an eight-year-old son. The deceased was battling a stomach ache after having an abortion six months ago.

Her husband would ensure he called her every hour whenever he was out of station. On Wednesday around 5 pm, he, along with the son, left for Chittoor and kept speaking to her by phone until 11 pm, police explained.

Then at 1 am, he called her again on the mobile phone as well as the landline but the calls were not answered. He then grew apprehensive and called up Indushekhar, requesting him to check on Divya.

Indushekhar, who lives in Thyagarajanagar, went to Shashidhar’s house and knocked on the door. But there was no response to his repeated knocks. He then peeped through the window into the house and was stunned to find Divya hanging dead, police said.

No death note has been found. The body was handed over to the family after a post-mortem at Victoria Hospital.
