Quoting an official, news agency KNO reported that the woman, a native of West Bengal, climbed a hillock in Delina in an attempt to commit suicide.

The official said the woman who was rescued has been married to a resident of Delina. “She was feeling disturbed as she had lost contact with her family in Bengal, which is why she tried to take this extreme step,” he said.
