New Delhi, May 14 (IANS): A 40-year-old woman committed suicide by consuming a poisonous substance at her home as she was depressed after the death of her husband in a factory here, family members said Wednesday.

Police, however, said the woman died due to a heart attack.

The incident took place at Delhi Cantt area in west Delhi Tuesday. Sohan Singh, who worked in a fancy light factory, died on the spot when a machine fell on his head.
