Mangaluru: Safia (26), wife of Iqbal of Rantadka in Boliyar and mother of a small child, ended her life by hanging herself at home.
Hailing from Subhash Nagar in Munnur, she had been given in marriage to Iqbal three years ago. He runs a restaurant in Mudipu.
Those who knew them said that the couple had a cordial relationship. But the parents of Safia have alleged that she was being mentally harassed by the in-laws.
Her body was taken to a private hospital in Deralakatte for post-mortem examination. The Mangaluru tahsildar is expected to hold an inquiry on Monday.
