A newly-wed woman was found hanging in her husband’s house near here under mysterious circumstances in the wee hours on Wednesday.

According to the Thaloyalaparambu police, the body of 25-year-old Jilu was found hanging from the ceiling of her bedroom in the Pullarrakkunnu house in Velloor.

The police said that the death was reported at around 2.45 a.m. The tragedy came to light when her parents-in-law, who were also staying in the house, went to the room in search of her.

The body was later sent to the Kottayam Medical College for post-mortem. The Revenue Divisional Officer (RDO) has initiated inquest proceedings to ascertain the circumstances that had led to the death.
