Kolkata: A young woman has ended her life by hanging following a discord with husband over who should tend to their child who has been keeping ill for the past few days.

The incident has taken place at Sarada Park at Garia Kamdahari in south Kolkata. The area falls under the jurisdiction of Bansdroni police station.

The four-year-old daughter of Kabita Mondal and Robin Mondal has been suffering from cold and cough for the past few days. Because of this, the girl wouldn’t be able to have a sound sleep all night and also get up at dawn complaining about her ailments.

Kabita almost felt exhausted in tending to the unwell child through the night and expected husband Robin to look after the child when she gets up at dawn. With Robin denying the responsibility, an argument broke out between the two early in the morning and it eventually escalated into a fight.

Upset by this, Kabita locked herself in a room and hanged from the ceiling with a scarf. By the time Robin responded, she was dead.

Following the tragic incident, Kabita’s parents lodged a complaint against Robin at Bansdroni police station and the police have arrested him for abetting the suicide.
