Madikeri (Karnataka), Oct 13: A young housewife allegedly committed suicide at Somwarpet following dowry harassment.

Police said Sindhu (24), daughter of a jeweller at Somwarpet, was married to Manjunath, a jeweller at Davanagere.

He was given one kg gold, 1.5 kg silver and Rs four lakh as dowry during the marriage last year.

Manjunath allegedly harassed her mentally and physically demanding more money, following which the girl returned to her parent's house recently.

Yesterday, Manjunath reportedly asked his in-laws to send Sindhu back home.

As her parents agreed, fearing further harassment, Sindhu committed sucide by hanging herself, police added.
