Woman kills self, kin blame in-laws

NEW DELHI: A 29-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide at her house in southeast Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh on Tuesday night. Her family members, however, suspect that she was forced to take the step by her husband – a software engineer – as the couple had regular arguments.

They said that her husband and his family demanded dowry and forcefully took the woman’s salary every month. Police said that they are probing into these allegations.

Cops received a PCR call from one of the victim’s relatives, soon after which they reached the spot and rushed the woman to a private hospital, where she was declared brought dead.

Speaking to TOI, the deceased’s family said that the woman worked as a clerk at the railways department and had recently taken a transfer to Delhi as her husband worked in Gurgaon. “While she was in Patna, her husband asked her to move here so that they could live together and start a family,” said a relative.

“Her husband and his family kept forcing her for money and so she must have been compelled to take this step,” the relative added. The police have registered a case and are probing the matter.
