A 20-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide after being threatened by her sister-in-law of implicating her in a case of dowry harassment, police said in Kanpur on Tuesday. Aarti hanged herself in her room on Monday, police said.

A suicide note has been recovered in which she has blamed her sister-in-law Shweta and her relatives for her suicide, police said.
