Captain Megha Razdan of 113 Engineering Regiment (Electrical and Mechanical Engineer) committed suicide by hanging herself around 07:30 am on Monday, they said.

The captain had some problems with her immediate officers in the unit and a court of inquiry has been ordered into the incident, they said.
She was married just four months ago to Captain Chaitanya of Maharashtra who was dealing with chemical and biological warfare of EME.
General Officer Commanding Tiger Division Major General L Loomba and others senior army officers visited the site of incident.
