Jamshedpur: A newly-married girl aged 23 committed suicide by hanging at her in-laws’ house in Birsanagar near Telco at the wee hours today, triggering a sensation in the locality.
The victim, C Saloni Naidu (23) was married to Ravneet Bhamra (26) after an affair a year ago, but she took the drastic step after celebrating the Raksha Bandhan on Thursday.
The police recovered the body and sent it to the MGM medical college mortuary for postmortem having registered a case of suicide. Sources informed that Saloni had married, going against the wishes of her parents, she would act more as a nurse for her husband at home than a wife.
Son of Balbir Singh Bhamra, Ravneet is an epileptic and his left hand is paralyzed. As he remains physically unwell most of the time, the deceased would take care of his well-being as a nurse has to do for patients at any health hub.
Ravneet used to look after his father’s tent-house business as his career by sitting at home. Saloni committed suicide when her husband was the only one at home. Her father-in-law, mother-in-law and elder sister-in-law have been out of the station for the past fortnight.
Officer in charge of Birsanagar police station Murtaza Ansari said they have taken a statement from Ravneet in connection to the incident and confirmed it to be a case of suicide.
“We are investigating the incident. Last night, Saloni had gone to one of her friends’ house at Birsanagar zone No 9 for tying ‘Rakhi.’ Late in the night, Saloni and her friend Vivek who she regarded as her brother had dinner together. Then Vivek returned home and sometime later, Saloni committed suicide having bolted the door of a room from inside,” said the OC.
