A woman allegedly committed suicide with her nine-year-old son by jumping into a well at a village in Maharashtra's Ahmednagar district, police said on Friday.


The police have registered a case under section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code against the woman's husband and her in-laws, an official said.



Manisha Narwade (32) allegedly jumped into a well along with her son Omkar in Pathardi village of Ahmednagar district on August 9, he said.


Prima facie, it appears that the woman took the extreme step as she was being harassed by her husband and in-laws, the official said.

Angered by the incident, villagers set fire to the house of the woman's in-laws and demanded strict action against them, police said.

Meanwhile, in an another incident earlier this week, a 26-year-old man allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself at his house in Maharashtra's Nagpur city, after his wife sought to divorce him, police said on Tuesday, according to the PTI.

The incident occurred at Ramteke Nagar under Ajni police station area on Monday afternoon, an official said.

Mohit Sukhchand Choudhary, a native of Balaghat district of neighbouring Madhya Pradesh, hanged himself from the ceiling at his rented accommodation, he said.

The victim, who worked as a painter, got married last month. But the couple fought and argued frequently, and his wife returned to her parents' house, the official said.

Choudhary's wife eventually sought a divorce from him, he said.

The police recovered a suicide note from the spot, in which Choudhary cited his wife's intention to divorce him as the reason for the extreme step, the official said, adding that a case of accidental death has been registered.
