Being subjected to orthodox indifferences, woman commits suicide!
By Manisha Jangir
On Monday, a 27 year old woman of Mumbai ended her life. She was allegedly forced to live in dreadful conditions by her in-laws. She was also forced to wear her deceased mother in-law's unwashed clothes. The day after the woman hanged herself, her father went to the police and filed a complaint. The deceased was identified as Harshali and she was a native of Jalgaon.
Harshali got married on 1 December and started living with her in-laws last year. But the accused, her in-laws started harassing her day after the marriage. As her sister-in-law managed the expenses of the wedding reception, she often used to criticise and asked other family members to avoid her.
One day her sister-in-law forced her to wear an old saree that belonged to her mother-in-law who passed away 10 years ago. She was forced to wear that even if it was smelling and her in-laws continued to harass her. Being tired of such inhumane behaviour she hanged herself when her in-laws were watching an IPL match. At around 5:30 AM, when her father-in-law couldn't enter her room, he called other members and they all came to know about her suicide.
Firoz Bagwan, Senior Inspector of Tardeo police station said, “ In his complaint, woman’s father stated that being tired of continuous harassment she committed suicide. We have initiated our investigation and will make arrests accordingly.”
