Upset over allegations of extramarital affair by kin and neighbour, a 35-year-old woman committed suicide in Gurbax Nagar on Thursday night. The deceased has been identified as Radha.
On the complaint of her brother, the police have booked three persons, including two women. One of the accused has been identified as Rakesh Kumar.
Deceased’s brother Sandeep said, “One of our uncles and his daughter raised a finger at the character of my sister. A neighbouring woman had shared such stories with others. Radha got upset and visited her uncle’s house on Thursday evening. She asked them to prove their allegation or apologise. The family did not listen to her.”
