Married woman hangs self in Indore


Indore: A newly-married woman and mother of a baby girl allegedly committed suicide at her home.

However, her parents have claimed that their daughter did not commit suicide but rather was murdered by her in-laws, who hanged her to make it look suicide.

According to the police, the incident occurred in village Gangaghati under Shipra police station. The woman was identified as Ritu wife of Vishal.

Ritu’s parents alleged that she was being harassed for dowry since her marriage and the harassment increased after Ritu gave birth to a baby girl recently.

Ritu’s parents further alleged that her in-laws told her to come back so that her baby could be registered for Ladli Lakshmi programme but instead murdered her and hanged her to make it look suicide.

The police have registered a case and are investigating the matter.
