A 45-year-old woman, allegedly suffering from a neurological disorder, committed suicide in the Capital on Sunday.
The victim, Asha Kumari, was found hanging from the ceiling fan at her residence, located within the compound of an industrialist’s residence, at 10.30 a.m.
Asha used to work as a domestic help at the 6, Aurangzeb Road residence of the Chan family — proprietors of the popular British Motors car showroom in Connaught Place.
"Asha stayed at the servant quarters with her sister Gauri and brother-in-law Kamal," said a senior police officer on the condition of anonymity.
"We were informed about the incident by the victim’s sister," the officer said.
According to the police, a suicide note has been recovered from the victim.
"In her suicide note, Asha has taken responsibility for the drastic step and has requested that her sister and brother-in-law should not be held responsible for her death," said VA Gupta, additional deputy commissioner of police.
The victim's body has been handed over to her relatives after a postmortem at the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital.
A case has been registered at the Tughlak Road police station.
