Press Trust of India  |  Mathura 

A 20-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide here as she was depressed over the police's failure to track down her parent's killers even seven months after the incident.

Angry residents blocked the Mathura-Govardhan road today by placing her body on it, the police said.

The road block was lifted after the district police chief Swapnil Mamgai announced that the SHO concerned has been suspended.

"The SHO of Highway police station, Girish Chandra Tewari, has been suspended and the probe has been given to crime branch with instruction to ensure early breakthrough," SSP Mamgai said.

minister Shrikant Sharma said the state will provide financial assistance of 5 lakh to bereaved family.

The victim has a 17-year-old brother and 14-year-old sister.

Banwari Lal and Rani Bala were allegedly killed on March 8, when their children were sleeping in the house of neighbour as construction work was going on in their house.
