The police suspect that a quarrel with her husband may have triggered the woman to take the drastic step. "Our primary investigation report says, the victim had asked her husband to take her to function to which he refused. This might have forced her to take this extreme step. Otherwise, they were a happy couple and had recently gone on a Srilanka trip" said inspector of Police, Lakshmi Narayana. A case has been registered and an investigation is underway.

In another incident, a 30-year-old woman, who resides in Palghar district in Maharashtra, apparently poisoned her own two children - minor daughters - and then committed suicide, according to the police.
