A 26-year-old married woman allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself at her house in Delhi’s Sultanpuri, police said on Sunday, adding her husband was arrested for subjecting her to cruelty.
A senior police official said that on October 28, they received an information about suspicious death of a woman from the Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital.
The deceased was identified as Divya, 26, a resident of P Block in Sultanpuri.
The police said that since the woman died within seven years of her marriage, they initiated an SDM-level inquiry into the matter.
