MAKKAL Osai reported that a 20-year-old woman committed suicide by jumping into the Adyar River at Kotturpuram in India a few days after getting married on Jan 25.
Police said the body of Jhansi was fished out of the river.
Her grieving husband Jnana Raj, 24, said he was surprised by her decision as they were only married for a few days.
Four days into their marriage, they spent an evening at the beach and got back home around 7pm.
His wife told him that she wanted to visit her parents' house, which was in the neighbourhood.
When Jnana failed to find her at his in-laws' place, they began a frantic search for her.
When he called his wife on her mobile phone, a policeman told him that she had jumped into a river.
She left a suicide note, saying she wanted to become a nun and do social services.
She also said she was not interested in marital life but she had no complaints against her husband as he had treated her well.
