  • 27-year-old woman dies by suicide, upset over her husband’s inability to set up toilet in house.

A 27-year-old woman from Tamil Nadu, India, allegedly died by suicide after being upset over her husband’s inability to set up a toilet in the house, India Times reported. 

Ramya, who was a pharmacist and worked at a private hospital in Cuddalore, was in a relationship with her husband, Karthikeyan, for more than two years. They finally got married on April 6.

A day after the marriage, however, Ramya returned to her mother’s house as there was no functional toilet at her husband’s place. 

Karthikeyan reassured her and said that he would rent a house with a toilet facility. Allegedly, he never fulfilled his promise. 

Ramya, disheartened and disappointed, tried to take her life on May 10. Her mother found her hanging from her sari, struggling to breathe. 

She was rushed to the hospital and was admitted there for two days but she eventually passed away on Tuesday.  

Ramya’s mother lodged a complaint at Thiruppadhiripuliyar police station against Karthikeyan.

Police are further investigating her father’s role in her being upset as he did not approve of the marriage and had not attended any of the events.
