Death by hanging - Domestic abuse

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 22: A Sri Lankan woman committed suicide by hanging herself using a rope from the ceiling fan of her room in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh area.

According to security sources, when the caretaker of a residential building in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh area informed the Operations Room of Ministry of Interior about the incident, securitymen and paramedics rushed to the location.

They saw the woman hanging from the ceiling fan and brought her down to discover she was dead. The corpse was referred to the Forensics Department and a case has been registered in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh Police Station for investigations. Securitymen will question the other tenants to determine the cause of her suicide.

Meanwhile, a 20-year-old Kuwaiti woman filed a complaint against her compatriot husband at Ishbiliya Police Station for allegedly beating her. The woman told police she had a heated argument with her husband and she was surprised when he started beating her. She presented a medical report to substantiate her claim.

The husband will be summoned soon for questioning and the necessary legal action will be taken against him if proven guilty. In an unrelated incident, another Kuwaiti woman lodged a similar complaint at Al-Salam Police Station against her husband - also a Kuwaiti. Investigations are ongoing to verify the complaint.
