Mandeep Kaur, a resident of New York, died by suicide on 3 August, after repeated domestic abuse allegedly by her husband Ranjodhbeer Singh Sandhu for close to eight years.
Mandeep Kaur is survived by her two daughters, aged four and six, whose custody currently lies with Sandhu. While the husband and daughters are currently in Richmond Hill, New York, his family is reportedly from Uttar Pradesh's Bijnor. Notably, before the suicide, Mandeep had shared her video narrating the ordeal of domestic violence abuse she had been facing for the past 8 years.
Reportedly, the New York Police Department is currently investigating the case and has registered a case homicide in place of suicide.
