Mangalore, July 24: In a case of dowry death, a woman breathed her last at a private hospital in the city on Friday, after allegedly attempting to commit suicide unable to bear the physical and mental torture meted out to her by husband and in-laws.
The victim has been identified as Sameena, sister of S M Farooq from Goa. She had been married to one Abdul Rasheed, a resident of Kinya village near here.
