A young woman holding an MBA degree allegedly jumped into Yamuna river in the Capital this evening apparently frustrated over not getting a job.

The incident took place at ITO bridge in Central Delhi and the girl has been identified as 24-year-old Neha, a resident of Bengali Market.

She had left her home this evening and later sent a text message to her sister Nidhi saying she was frustrated with her life and was going to commit suicide, police said.

Nidhi tried to call her but she did not pick up the phone. The sister then informed her parents and one of Neha's uncle, who is a lawyer, rushed to the spot.

He found the car on Vikas Marg and informed police and fire brigade.

"We are searching for her in the river and are yet to locate her," a police official said.

The victim's father works as an enginner in Doordarshan.
