A 22-year-old woman, who had separated from her husband and children, and was living with another man, has apparently committed suicide in Rajasthan's Kota district, the police said today.
Punam Soni, a mother of two children, was found hanging from a ceiling fan last night by her partner, Badrinath, at their rented house here, around 250km from Jaipur. No suicide note was recovered, a police official said.
Soni's brother told the police that she had complained to her mother of harassment and torture by Badrinath, the sub-inspector said.
The accused has been booked based on the brother's complaint on the charge of abatement to suicide, Rao said.
Soni had abandoned her husband and two kids in Uttar Pradesh and returned to his brother's house in Vigyan Nagar area here two years ago. About one-and-a-half year back, she moved in with Badrinath, Rao added.
