Police launched an investigation after a husband found his wife hanging from a ceiling fan, according to police in India.

Uttar Pradesh said that on Sunday morning, Deepak Dwivedi broke into his bedroom and found his wife, 23-year-old Deepika, was dead apparently as a result of suicide.

Dwivedi immediately called the police to report the death of his wife.

The grieving husband told police that on Saturday morning, Deepika wanted to go shopping for an upcoming family wedding.

Dwivedi however, was busy at work and told his wife that the shopping trip will have to wait for Sunday.

This did not go down well with Deepika.

She locked herself in the bedroom and refused to come out.

Later in the evening, when Dwivedi got home from work, he tried to enter the bedroom but the door was still locked.

Dwivedi had no choice but to sleep on the couch in the living room.

On Sunday morning, when his wife still refused to unlock the door, he broke into the room.

That is when he found Deepika hanging from the ceiling fan.
