Kasaragod: Simi (31), wife of Ramadas of Alami Palli in Hosadurg in the district and a new mother, ended her life by jumping off the 5th floor of Pariyaram Medical College hospital in Kannur on Monday early morning.
She had first been admitted to the district hospital in Kanhangad on Apr 20 and she delivered a girl child the same day. Since she suffered excessive bleeding, she was shifted to the Pariyaram hospital the next day.
She was reportedly undergoing a state of depression after childbirth. On Monday morning, she suddenly jumped off the 5th floor of the hospital. Critically injured, she was treated in the same hospital but she succumbed to the injuries soon thereafter.
