Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh: A woman allegedly committed suicide in Ukhari area of Jabalpur district on Thursday after heated exchanges with her husband over the issue of “intolerance”, police said.

Police said Sonam Pandey had a quarrel with her husband Ayank on the issue before she consumed poison and took her own life.

Ayank told reporters that the couple had a heated discussion on the issue of “intolerance” after reading Bollywood star Aamir Khan’s statement in a newspaper.
