CHITRAL: A woman is said to have committed suicide by jumping into the river in Lower Chitral, Rescue 1122 said on Saturday.
It is the third incident in five days in which a woman has ended her life in Chitral, said the rescue service.
The latest incident occurred in Bakhtoli village, where a married woman jumped into the river due to unknown reason.
The married woman reportedly killed herself on Sept 25 and her body was spotted by locals near Bilphok village.
After being alerted, Rescue 1122 staff reached the spot and recovered the body from the water and shifted it to the District Headquarters Hospital.
It may be noted that five days ago, another married woman from Orghoch, in her early 30s, allegedly jumped into the river due to her strained domestic relations.
A 25-year-old woman in Charun village of Upper Chitral also ended her life by jumping into the river three days ago. The bodies of these two women have not yet been recovered.
