Snippet from the article:
Overwrought with worry over hair fall, a 47-year-old woman allegedly hanged herself from the ceiling fan at her flat in Bhayander late on Wednesday. The family of the deceased informed the police that the woman had been experiencing excessive hair fall over the past few months, and was worried about it. The Navghar police have registered an accidental death report in the case.
The deceased has been identified as Suparna Das, a resident of Krishna Park in Bhayender (East). Madhusudan, her husband said, â€œMy wife used to look beautiful as she had long hair. A few months ago, she started suffering from excessive hair loss. We got her blood tests done to identify the cause. Since then, she had been very quiet. But I never thought that she would do something like this.â€
