MUZAFFARNAGAR -- A 20-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling of her house as she did not have valid currency for her treatment in Shamli district, police said on Monday.

Shabana committed suicide on Sunday allegedly by hanging from the ceiling as there was no valid currency available at her home and Mobin, her brother, was standing in a queue to get the currency exchanged, SHO Anuradha Singhal said.

The incident came to light when her brother returned home, without getting the currency exchanged, and found her hanging, she said.

According to her family, Shabana was worried over her treatment as she was not keeping well for some time and did not have valid cash.
