Woman ends life after neighbours' 'prostitute taunt'

A 37-year-old woman committed suicide after her neighbours purportedly called  her a prostitute, police said.  

Parvathi, a garment factory worker, hanged herself at her home in Ashrayanagar, North Bengaluru, on Thursday. She was living with her 15-year-old daughter and her husband had deserted her a few years ago.  The suicide emerged  when her daughter came home. She found her mother hanging from the ceiling fan.  

The daughter and neighbours took  Parvathi to a hospital where she was declared brought dead.  A preliminary investigation showed Parvathi had an altercation with her  neighbours  hours before the suicide, and they reportedly called her names.  Police, however, said it was unclear if the altercation drove  Parvathi to suicide as they had not yet found any death note.

A case of unnatural death has been registered at the RMC Yard police station.
