MITHI: Two women committed suicide in separate incidents in Tharparkar district on Monday.
Reshma Kolhi, 22, took the extreme action in her house located in Sabosan village near Nagarparkar town by strangulating herself with a rope. She could not buy essentially needed footwear due to abject poverty, her husband, Wagho Kolhi, said.
In Napelo village, near Dahil town, a 27-year-old woman, Samina Rahimoon, committed suicide by using the same method.
Her relatives said she gave in to starvation as the family had nothing to eat for several days.
