20-year-old ends life after quarrel with mother

The deceased has been identified as Sangeetha, a resident of Manjunathnagar. She took the extreme step as she was upset after picking a quarrel with her mother Jamuna, who is a paralytic.

According to the police, Sangeetha was married to Sundaraj, who works at a lamination centre on West of Chord Road, in March. Jamuna is Sundaraj’s elder sister and Sangeetha was his second wife. He had married his younger sister’s daughter Kavitha 11 years ago. Kavitha died due to heart attack one-and-half-years ago, said the police.
There used to be frequent quarrels between them as Sangeetha was reportedly fed up with her mother’s attitude after she suffered stroke.

On Friday, after Sundaraj left for work the mother and the daughter exchanged heated words over a petty issue. Jamuna threatened to leave the house and go elsewhere.
An upset Sangeetha told her that she would hang herself, went into a room, locked from inside and hanged from a ceiling fan.

A helpless Jamuna, who can’t walk, tried to rescue her daughter and cried for help. A few neighbours immediately rushed and broke open the door, but Sangeetha had already died, added the police.
