Assam, Feb 6: In a tragic incident, a 34-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself in her rented house in Silchar city of Assam’s Cachar district. A note, purportedly written by her, blames her boyfriend for having pushed her to take the extreme step.

The now-deceased woman, identified as Lipi Dam Kanungo used to work at a motorcar showroom in Silchar. She used to live alone in a rented accommodation at Panchayat Road. Around 7:30 pm, her neighbors spotted her hanging from the ceiling fan at her house, following which police were informed.
