Lucknow: The dead body of a married woman was found hanging in the Kursi area of Lucknow on Thursday. The woman’s husband has been arrested by the police on suspicion of murder.
According to the police, the woman, identified as Sheela Verma, was married to Manoj Verma for the past 10 years and the couple had two children. On Thursday morning, Sheela’s body was found hanging from the ceiling fan in their house.
The police were informed of the incident by the woman’s neighbours. When the police arrived at the scene, they found that the woman’s husband Manoj was present in the house.

Incidents of domestic violence and crimes against women are on the rise in India. The government and various non-governmental organizations have launched campaigns and initiatives to create awareness about women’s rights and to combat violence against women. However, much more needs to be done to ensure the safety and well-being of women in the country.
