Bengaluru: A woman allegedly ended her life just nine months after her marriage, due to alleged harassment by her husband and in-laws after an astrologer's prediction.

The deceased has been identified as Ashwini. Her husband Yuvaraj has been arrested by the police and is speculated to be the cause of her death.

It is said that Yuvaraj and Ashwini had fallen in love during college days and decided to get married.

Ashwini, who had lost her father, convinced her mother for the alliance and the couple got married in the month of February this year.

The couple lived in a separate house for around two months. However, during the coronavirus lockdown, Yuvaraj lost his job and put in np efforts to look for another job. This created rift in the marriage forcing Ashwini to work alone and make ends meet.

Family members of Yuvaraj approached an astrologer who predicted that Ashwini would never bear children.

The couple had an argument on the night of Friday, November 13. It is said that Yuvaraj assaulted Ashwini on the morning of Saturday, November 14 too.

A short while later, Yuvaraj conveyed to her relatives that Ashwini had fallen ill and been admitted to hospital. Before her mother and sister could reach the hospital, Ashwini had breathed her last.

Family members of Ashwini accused Yuvaraj of ruining Ashwini's life based on the words of the astrologer. Injury marks were found on Ashwini's body, sources said.

There is uncertainty regarding the way Ashwini died. The truth would be revealed only after a post-mortem report is available. The body was shifted to Ambedkar hospital for post-mortem. A case has been registered in the Hennur police station.
