CHATTOGRAM: A housewife attempted to commit suicide through setting fire on her body reportedly over mental depression in the city’s CDA Residential area on Monday.

The victim was identified as Sathi Begum, 23, a resident of the CDA-19 under Double-mooring police station. Sources said divorcee Sathi had been living with her second-husband on third floor of a rented residence in the area.

She has been suffering from mental depression as her husband is now in jail in a drug case, sources said.

Besides, the victim also reportedly used to take drug and doesn’t maintain relationship with her family.

As there was none in the house, she set fire on her body by pouring kerosene around 4:00am. At one stage, she also phoned her mother to save her.
