Kundapur: A 23-year-old recently married woman committed suicide by hanging herself to the ceiling fan at her parents house at Keradi here, on October 4.
The deceased has been identified as Pavithra Shetty (23), wife of Sathish Shetty, a resident of Chittur. Pavithra was married to Sathish on May 29, 2015.
According to the police, after marriage Pavithra used to visit and often stay at her parents house.
