A young fashion designer from Bihar hanged herself at her apartment near Ulsoor lake here in the late hours of Monday.

Ruchi Shandilya (27), who was working with a reputed company, left a note saying no one should be blamed for her suicide and that her husband Prashanth Kumar is a “gentleman and good at heart”.

But the note did not cite the reason for her extreme step.

Prashanth Kumar is working as a consultant in a private firm.

However, a neighbour described the couple's relationship as dysfunctional and that Ruchi had appeared depressed for the past few days though her aunt, Niraj Neelabindu, said it was a loving relationship.

The Ulsoor police said Ruchi ended her life when Prashant was away at work and he came home to find her hanging in the puja room.

The police have already recorded his statements.

The couple met each other and married in 2008.
