BENGALURU: In the wake of an alleged dowry harassment case, a 27-year-old woman committed suicide on Sunday by hanging at her house in Sunkadakatte on Magadi Road. Her husband and in-laws are absconding after the incident, the police said. The deceased has been identified as Ramya, wife of Manjunath, who is a realtor. The couple got married four years ago.
