RICHMOND HILLS, NY – A 30-year-old Sikh woman, Mandeep Kaur died by suicide last night in Richmond Hills in Queens neighborhood of NY. Just before the suicide, Mandeep made a video detailing the reasons for taking this extreme step. She said that for 8-years she has been living a life of abuse, violence and has been cheated upon. After her suicide video, another video emerged on social media which shows the extent of torture she was going through. In the video it can be seen that her husband is constantly beating her up, while her two little children cry in the background. The video shows her husband strangling and beating her for five minutes until she is forced to apologize.

Her husband Ranjodhbeer Singh Sandhu currently has the custody of their two daughters aged 4 and 6. The case has created a huge outrage in the society and activists are calling out this dangerous trend of ignoring domestic abuse against women.

The NYPD has been involved in the case and it was updated that Mandeep Kaur’s case is now being investigated as homicide rather than suicide.
