Kasaragod: Vijina (21), daughter of Vijay and Pramila of Kadappura in Koippadi near Kumbla in the district, was found hanging in her house when her parents had gone out on Wednesday.
Her engagement had recently taken place with a young man of the same region. Since then she had also appeared for an interview for a well-placed job in a Chennai-based bank and she was expecting a call for appointment.
Some neighbours who came to her house to drink water found her having taken the extreme step. They rushed her to a nearby hospital but her life could not be saved.
Family sources said that she had lost a brother in a mishap on the national highway some time ago.
