BANGALORE: Two women ended their lives in separate incidents in the city on Saturday.

A techie’s wife, being unable to bear alleged dowry harassment, ended her life by hanging at her residence in BTM Layout in Madiwala police station limits on Saturday.

The deceased, Kalpana, 26, was an MCA post-graduate.

She was married to Rangaraju Subhash Chandra, a software engineer, for two years and the couple has a one-year-old daughter.

They hailed from Andhra Pradesh.

According to the police, Rangaraju allegedly harassed his wife to bring more dowry and the couple fought frequently over this issue.

On Saturday evening, dejected over a quarrel, Kalpana ended her life.

Her father filed a complaint against Kalpana’s husband, parents-in-law Lakshmana Murthy and Nalini, and brother-in-law Mahesh Chandra.

In the other case, a 24-year-old woman committed suicide after her mother scolded her for not doing any household works.

The incident was reported at Ganganagar in R T Nagar police station limits on Saturday.

The deceased, Bhuvana, was residing with her mother and a younger brother.

Police said that Nirmala used to scold Bhuvana for not having food on time and not any doing household chore.

On Saturday night, Bhuvana was watching television and her mother scolded her again over the same issue.

Upset with this, Bhuvana hanged herself from the fan.
