Karachi: A woman committed suicide on Friday after a marriage-related quarrel with her parents.
Sadaf, 24, daughter of Musawar Khan, hanged herself from a ceiling fan at her residence in Bilal Colony. The deceased locked herself in her room after a heated exchange with her parents over her wish to marry a person she loved.
After a few hours, her mother called for her to come out but Sadaf did not answer. She tried to force open the door and finally called her brother-in-law to help knock it over, upon which they discovered the deceased. Police shifted the body to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center for legal formalities.
