"Harpreet's neighbor found her hanging and made a call to police. Her son was in the room when she hanged herself. She was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival," a police official said. She lived with her husband Parminder Singh, a software engineer, and a five-year-old son.

Police have detained Harpreet's husband as Harpreet's family members accused him of harassing her for dowry. A probe by a sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) is on in the case. "The couple had frequent fights in the last six months and the matter was once reported to the police station as well," said the officer, adding that a case of dowry harassment has been registered in connection with the suicide.
