Kolhapur, Jan 1 (UNI) A 22-year-old married woman committed suicide at Kalamba on the outskirts of the city today, allegedly over dowry demands.
Ujwala Amol Shinde strangulated herself to death at her house early this morning.
Her father Sakharam Tipugade, however, has lodged a complaint with the police alleging that Ujwala's husband Amol and his mother Yashodha had been harassing Ujwala over monetary demands.
They had asked her to bring Rs one lakh from her parent's home, Mr Tipugade said in his complaint. His daughter had become fed-up with the persistent demand and, so, had ended her life, he added.
Meanwhile, a second case of suicide was reported in the city.
Thirty six-year-old Subhash Pandurang Naik from Hatkanangle tehsil of this district who was presently staying at R K Nagar suburbs of the city, strangulated himself to death, police said.
Subhash took the extreme step as he was unable to cope with his drinking habits, police said.
