Bengaluru: Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Yelachenahalli corporator's daughter-in-law allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself. A case of unnatural death has been filed at the Koodigehalli Police Station.

The victim has been identified as Monica, 30, daughter-in-law of BBMP corporator Balakrishna.

Monica is the daughter of businessman Prakash. She had got married to Balakrishna's son Karthik in 2009. The couple has two daughters. But as there were differences between the two, Monica had left Karthik and children, and was living at her father's house for nine months now.

On January 18, Monica's parents had left for Hassan at 7 AM. Her father Prakash received a phone call at 4 AM from Monica's friend Joy Varma. She said that Monica had tried to commit suicide and was admitted to the hospital.

Joy had said that Monica had called her and said that she was sad and had cut the call abruptly. Later, when she called her back, she did not receive the call. Joy immediately reached Monica's house and it was locked. Nobody answered the doorbell too. So, a key maker was called and made to open the door with a duplicate key just to find Monica hanging from the fan inside her room. 

She was brought down and was admitted to the hospital. The reason for the alleged suicide is not known yet. The police are investigating the matter.
