A 24-year-old woman died after she allegedly hanged herself from a ceiling fan at her house in Kherki Daula on Sunday evening. Police said they did not recover any suicide note from the spot.

According to the police, the deceased was a resident of Kherki Daula. She was a homemaker and her husband was unemployed. The incident took place Sunday around 5pm.

Investigative officer Charan Singh, Kherki Daula police station, said, “On Sunday, he had gone to Jhajjar for some personal work. When he returned around 5pm, he saw his wife hanging. He contacted the family members. We reached at the spot and did not find any suicide note.” Singh added that the family of the deceased denied that she was under any kind of duress or was depressed.

Police said they have handed over her body to her family after a post-mortem examination on Monday.

In a separate incident, a woman suspected to be in her mid-20s died after she hanged herself from a ceiling fan of her room in DLF Phase-3 on Sunday. Police said they did not find any suicide note from the spot.

According to the police, the deceased was a native of Uttar Pradesh and worked at a saloon near her rented residence.

Nathupur police post in-charge Ravinder said, “Her family said she had some dispute with her husband. However, they did not give more details and refused to press charges. We are investigating the matter.”

The deceased’s body was handed over to her family members after a post-mortem examination on Monday.

Police have initiated inquest proceedings under section 174 of the code of criminal procedure (CrPC) in both the cases.
