Two days after her boyfriend was allegedly driven to death by his demanding parents, Rohit Gupta's (22) depressed girlfriend committed suicide at her northwest Delhi residence on Monday afternoon, police said.

"The incident was reported from Bharat Nagar's Bynker Colony area at 2.30pm and

the deceased has been identified as Veena. She is Rohit Gupta's girlfriend. Gupta had committed suicide on Saturday," said a senior Delhi Police officer.

Rohit Gupta alias Babu — who was incensed when his parents had woken him up early morning to run errands at his residence in Wazirpur's JJ Colony Slum Cluster — had hung himself at his ground-floor residence on October 16.

Police said Veena had left behind a suicide not stating that she loved him and was going to meet him soon.

"Veena waited for her mother and two brothers to leave the house and locked herself in the room. She then wrote a suicide note which read: "Babu, I love you. Main Tumhare paas aa rahi hun (I am coming to you)" before hanging herself using her own chunni," the officer said.

According to police, the incident was discovered when one of Veena's neighbours went to her house to ask for one of her brothers.

"The neighbour kept knocking and realised something was amiss after no one answered. A group of neighbours gathered and broke the door. She was hanging from the ceiling fan with her chunni," said the officer.

Police said she was rushed to an adjacent hospital where she was declared brought dead on arrival.

"We have registered a case and are investigating the matter," the officer added.
