20-yr-old housewife's body found

Kolkata: Mystery shrouds the death of a housewife whose body was found at the residence of her in-laws in Naihati's Ghosh Para area on Saturday morning.

The victim, a 20-year-old woman, had strangulation marks around her neck which make the investigating officers believe that there must be some foul play behind her death. Her in-laws, however, claimed that the victim committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling fan. She was later taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced brought dead.

The family members of the victim alleged that she was murdered by her in-laws as she wore a trouser and T-shirt.

The police are yet to ascertain the exact cause of death. The victim's family members also lodged a complaint with the Naihati police station. The police are also investigating if the victim had committed suicide after suffering humiliation or she was strangulated to death. They are waiting for the post-mortem report which can throw light on the nature of death.
