A dentist, reportedly upset over her husband’s refusal to accompany her to a relative’s house, choosing instead to attend a puja at his friend’s place, hanged herself at her house in Vijayanagar on Sunday.

The body of Sumathi M.H. (28) was found by her father-in-law. She left no note. Sumathi was married to Mohinder N. for four years and the couple had a two-year-old daughter.

Her mother Suvarnavathi told the police the in-laws were restrictive, which the latter denied.

Police said the husband’s family had paid for Sumathi’s postgraduate course and had bought her a vehicle so that she could attend the classes that were to begin on Monday.
