After three days of confusion over the cause of 19-year-old BA student Neha Kakkar's death, Delhi Police on Tuesday confirmed that she had committed suicide by jumping off a high-rise building allegedly after being betrayed in love.
Police found that minutes before she leapt off the Kirti Shikhar District Centre in Janakpuri, she had messaged her boyfriend from her mobile phone saying, "I will never show my face to you again... Bye forever."
"I promise I will not SMS you again. I will never show my face to you again. I really love you. Bye forever," her last message read.
"Her death was due to the fall from the height. She fell from the high-rise building on a tree and then landed on the the ground. Two eyewitnesses have corroborated this," Deputy Commissioner of Police Robin Hibu informed in New Delhi.
Scotching speculation that she was sexually assaulted, the official said, "Her post-mortem report indicated clearly that she was not raped before her death. Her injuries were anti-mortem."
The girl's father Chaman Lal had earlier claimed that her body had scratch marks in the private parts and alleged that it was a case of sexual assault and that his daughter had been murdered.
He said two persons had also spotted her "alone" on the sixth floor of the building minutes before the incident on Saturday evening.
"The SMS, other circumstantial evidences and the accounts of eyewitnesses have firmed up that it was a case of suicide," he said.
Kakkar, a BA second year student of Jesus and Mary College of Delhi University, was found dead below the District Centre on Saturday evening.
