A suspected illegal abortion attempt at the house of a retired nurse at Koratagere in Tumakuru district turned fatal with a 25-year-old woman dying owing to complications.

Radhamani, mother of three girls, died late on Friday night at Vani Vilas Hospital in Bengaluru, but the incident came to light only on Sunday, with the police and district health officers intensifying their investigation into the suspected abortion.

Radhamani allegedly wanted to abort the four-and-a-half month-old foetus “out of fear” that she would give birth to another girl, said family members.
