Woman commits suicide after row over ‘intolerance’ with spouse


A woman allegedly committed suicide in Ukhari area of Jabalpur district Madhya Pradesh on Thursday morning after heated exchanges with her husband over the issue of “intolerance”, police said.

Police said Sonam Pandey had a quarrel with her husband Ayank on the issue before she consumed poison and took her life.

Ayank told reporters that he and Sonam had a heated discussion on the issue of “intolerance” after reading Bollywood star Aamir Khan’s statement in a morning newspaper.

He said Sonam later went to her room. After some time, he claimed, he forced her room’s door open and saw her drinking lots of water and complaining of dizziness.

She was taken to hospital, where she died.

Kotwali police station chief Praful Srivastava said police were investigating the incident.
