Allahabad: In a suspected case of honour killing, an unmarried pregnant woman was found dead in her room in Neta Nagar colony here, police said on Thursday.
The body of 18-year-old Rajni Sahu was found hanging
from a ceiling of her room yesterday, they said.
A note purportedly written by Sahu stating that she
was committing suicide due to "a failed love affair" was found
in the room, they said.
The post-mortem report, however, said that Sahu, who
was one-month pregnant, died of head injury and her body was
later hanged to make it appear as a suicide case, Kydganj
police station in-charge Satyapal Singh said.
Sahu`s father and brother are being interrogated,
while the alleged suicide note has been sent for examination
by handwriting experts, he said.
Meanwhile, police is also trying to identify the
alleged lover of Sahu, a college student.
