New Delhi: A woman allegedly committed suicide over unemployment in Police line in Raipur district of Chhattisgarh.

Reports said a suicide note was recovered from the spot.

Last year, the state government landed in controversy after a class 10 social science textbook claimed that “working women are one of the causes of unemployment in the country”. The book has been published by the Chhattisgarh Board of Secondary Education.

A teacher confronted the government over the issue and petitioned state women’s commission against the content arguing that women have equal rights to employment.
