Woman kills self; husband, in-laws named in note
A 28-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide at her residence in South Delhi’s Katvaria Sarai allegedly after being harassed by her husband and in-laws who are absconding. A suicide note was found in her undergarments during post-mortem.
The deceased has been identified as Anita who got married to Ricky Kataria seven years ago and have two children. The couple were living with Ricky’s parents in Katvaria Sarai area. Her husband owns a taxi stand while her father-in-law is a senior officer in Tihar.
Anita was found hanging from a ceiling fan on Sunday in her bedroom and since then, her in-laws are absconding along with the couple’s children. When the police team reached the spot, they found external injuries on Anita’s body that were pointing towards assault. According to police, a few hours before she was found hanging, Anita had made a call to the police control room alleging a scuffle with her husband. When the police team reached the spot, the cops sorted out the issue and when Anita permitted, they left, police said.
Meanwhile, Anita’s parents who live in Mehrauli area claims that their daughter cannot commit suicide. “It’s a murder! And even if she had committed suicide, her in-laws must have forced her to take the extreme step due to regular harassment,” police said quoting Anita’s parent’s allegation.
On Monday, her parents, relatives and locals carried out a massive protest at the main road of Katwaria Sarai blocking traffic movement. Later, when police intervened, the protest was
called off and the statement of her parents were recorded by the sub-divisional magistrate.
During post-mortem examination on Monday, doctors have found a suicide note from her undergarments that reads harassment by her husband and in-laws to be the reason for ending her life. She allegedly wrote that her husband used to fight with her on a regular basis on the hear-say of his mother and sister against Anita.
Based on the suicide note and the inquest proceedings, Delhi Police are likely to file an FIR against her in-laws. Meanwhile, teams have been formed to find the whereabouts of Anita’s in-laws, police said.
