Residents of Piramal Nagar in Goregaon woke up to a dead body of a woman in front of their building on Monday morning.

She allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the terrace of the seven-storey building.

According to the panchnama done by the Goregaon police, the deceased has been identified as Ila Narayan Swami Varudandi (63). Officials also found a pair of footwear on the terrace, hinting she must have jumped from there.
