VISAKHAPATNAM : A newly-married woman committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling fan at her house in Sontyam area under the Anandapuram mandal of the city here Saturday.

The woman’s husband and his parents allegedly has been harassing her to bring more dowry. According to sources, Korukonda Kumari (19) was married to Satyababu, a home guard and native of Jibbadapalem area of the city.

Vexed with the harassment, Kumari went to her maternal home a few days ago. Later, she received a phone call from her husband Saturday night asking her to bring more dowry.

Unable to bear the  torture, Kumari took the extreme step when her family members were away. A case was registered and police are carrying out investigation.
