In a suspected case of honour killing, an unmarried pregnant woman was found dead in her room in Neta Nagar colony here, police said today.

The body of 18-year-old Rajni Sahu was found hanging from a ceiling of her room yesterday, they said.

A note purportedly written by Sahu stating that she was committing suicide due to "a failed love affair" was found in the room, they said.

The post-mortem report, however, said that Sahu, who was one-month pregnant, died of head injury and her body was later hanged to make it appear as a suicide case, Kydganj police station in-charge Satyapal Singh said.

Sahu's father and brother are being interrogated, while the alleged suicide note has been sent for examination by handwriting experts, he said.

Meanwhile, police is also trying to identify the alleged lover of Sahu, a college student.
