New Delhi: Two women allegedly committed suicide in two separate incidents in the national capital, police said on Friday.

A 28-year-old woman was found dead under mysterious circumstances in north Delhi's Burari area on Thursday, they said.

The family of the victim said that she had got married in January last year and her husband and in-laws used to torture her for dowry, police said.
