Chitral has been infamous for its rising number of suicides among young people, especially women. In this year alone, 45 cases were reported. As another unmarried woman of 23 years hanged herself from a ceiling fan in Bonn Faizabad late Monday night, the authorities formed a committee to investigate the death. Police also registered a case.

According to independent observers, this was the 20th suicide involving young people in the past three months in Chitral alone. In the first week of August, five students who had secured low marks in their intermediate exams committed suicide.
