Chennai: A woman allegedly committed suicide at her house in Thirumullaivoyal due to her husband’s drinking and abusive nature.
According to the police, the woman identified as Selvi (28), lived in Srinivasan Nagar, Thirumullaivoyal with her husband Prabhu and two-and-a-half-year-old son Mageswaran.
Police said, Selvi and Prabhu were distantly related and had married in 2013. Prabhu did not have a steady job.
He often came home in an inebriate condition and assaulted her. Three months ago, during a fight he slit her hand and left the house, police said.
On 29 December, he returned on the pretext of resolving the fight.
However, last night, when no one was at home Selvi allegedly hung herself. Subsequently, Selvi’s mother Sumathi lodged a complaint with the police. Further inquiries are underway.
