A 22-year-old woman died after allegedly falling from stairs in her house in Gandhi Nagar Friday. Police said prima facie, the injuries suggest that her locket got entangled around her neck as she slipped and slit her throat. She later succumbed to her injuries.

Police said information was received at the police control room at 12.39 pm, following which they rushed to the spot and found the woman, Radha Devi, lying on the stairs with injury marks on her throat.

A police officer said, “Devi’s four-year-old son was with her at the time of the incident. He told police that his mother had slipped from the stairs while coming down from the terrace. As she fell, she suffered a deep cut on her throat from the locket she was wearing.”

The boy informed other tenants in the building, who then contacted the woman’s husband. Police said her husband, Anil Paswan, who is a tailor in Raghubir Pura, was at work when the incident took place. The family hails from Kothia village in Bihar’s Madhubani. Police said no foul play has been found in the incident so far.
