Shivamogga, Jul 16: A teacher from the city committed suicide at her residence at Vinoba Nagara here on the night of Friday July 14. She was overwhelmed by the fact that her son had violated her instructions and got the 'tiger' haircut like some filmy heroes and resisted her efforts to do away with it.

The woman who ended her life by hanging herself at her home was V Pratiba (47), a teacher of San Jose School here. Her son, Vijay, a ninth standard student, had got his hair done at the salon like in the film 'Hebbuli', which is a style currently in vogue, although his mother had instructed him against it. When Vijay returned home, his mother got wild and told him that being a teacher, she and other fellow teachers send back students of the school with strange haircuts. "Being the son of a teacher, if you behave like this, what respect I can expect from my students,?" she wanted to know.

Although his mother advised Vijay to return to the salon and set his hair style right, the son refused. As he remained stubborn, Pratibha, in a rage, used the scissors in an effort to repair his haircut. Vijay fought with his mother, which gave rise to consternation in her mind. Out of frustration, she went into her bedroom, and hanged herself.

Vinoba Nagara police have registered a case. Investigation is on.
