The 35-year-old wife of a Delhi Police sub-inspector allegedly committed suicide at her southwest Delhi house after she fell out with the family of another officer on Sunday, the police said.
"The incident was reported from the Police Colony in Dwarka's Sector 9 yesterday," a senior police officer said. He said the deceased was identified as Soma Floria, wife of Sub-Inspector Mahesh Kumar who is posted in northwest Delhi.
Police said Floria was found hanging on Saturday morning from the ceiling fan of her first-floor residence. Her husband claimed to the sub-divisional magistrate that she was depressed after an argument with the family of Pyare Lal, an Additional SHO in Bindapur police station.
"Floria lived on the first floor while Lal's family stays on the second floor. Two days ago, Lal's son allegedly threw some garbage down and it fell in Floria's flat. This led to an argument between the two families," the officer said quoting Kumar's statement to SDM.
According to the police, Lal's family threatened her with dire consequences, which included a threat to have Kumar lose his job. Following this, she was under depression and she took the extreme step.
