Chandigarh: Within hours of undergoing an abortion, a 20-year-old woman committed suicide in a private maternity hospital here Wednesday.
The unmarried woman, identified as Ruchi from Haryana's Sirsa town, had been admitted to the hospital in Sector 21 here Tuesday.
She had undergone an abortion the same day and committed suicide Wednesday by hanging herself by a rope after tying it to the fan in a private room where she was admitted.
