A 19-year-old girl jumped to her death on Monday from the ninth floor of Tarika Apartments in Sector 43. At the time of incident, around 7am, Sultana, the victim, was alone in the flat, which is owned by one Manjeet Singh, who is a businessman.

Relatives of the deceased gathered at the Sushant Lok police station and demanded strict action against her employer, Singh, who allegedly used to overburden her with household work.

Gaurav Phogat, SHO, said, "No suicide note was found from the spot and we have taken the statement from Singh and his wife. We are conducting an investigation in the case."

Sultana had come to Gurgaon four months ago from Dakshin Dinajpur district in West Bengal. Somehow, she managed to get a job through a reference in Tarika Apartments near Gold Souk Mall in the city.

Relatives of Sultana alleged that she was in depression as Singh and his wife subjected her to long working hours. The girl's body has been handed over to her father after post mortem.
