Former air hostess Geetika Sharma's mother Anuradha Sharma, who committed suicide by hanging on Friday evening, was cremated in New Delhi on Saturday.

Her last rites took place at Punjabi Bagh cremation ground in the presence of her family members and neighbours.

Her husband Dinesh Sharma and son Ankit Sharma kept crying inconsolably. A distraught Ankit fainted at the funeral but he regained consciousness later.

In her suicide note, Anuradha Sharma, a retired accountant in the finance ministry, blamed former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda and his employee Aruna Chaddha - who have been booked for and are in jail for abetment of suicide of her daughter - of driving her to suicide with their harassment.

Sharma, in her 50s, was found hanging in her bedroom at her Ashok Vihar residence around 5.50pm Friday.
