SURAT: A 30-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide in poshParle Point area of the city by hanging herself on Thursday. Police investigations have revealed that there were external injury marks on her body. It is being investigated whether it was physical torture that led her to take the extreme step.

Umra police station officials said that Pooja Agarwal of Prabhavna apartment in Pratistha complex of Parle Point area hanged herself from a ceiling fan.

Police sources said the dead body had been taken down before they were approached. No arrests have been made in the matter so far and neither has any suicide note been found from the house.

Originally from Kathmandu in Nepal, she was married 11years ago to Ravi Agarwal who runs a computer education institute. The couple has two daughters of eight and three years of age.

Sources said that she had an ongoing dispute with her husband on the issue of visiting her parental home. Her neighbours told the police that a couple of days ago she had asked for her husband's permission to visit her father which was denied.

Police sub-inspector ZI Shaikh said, "We were informed that she was not allowed to visit her parental home for the last five years. She could not even go for her mother's funeral two years ago."

He further said, "When the body was sent for autopsy, I found scratch marks on her left shoulder and legs. I sought an investigation by forensic experts who have confirmed physical injury to the deceased."

The dead body is in police custody. They are waiting for her father to arrive from Kathmandu. Meanwhile, her husband is being questioned.

Ironically, a case of accidental death was initially registered by the police. Sources said that it will now be converted into a case of abetment to suicide or attempt to murder on the basis of outcome of investigations.
