A day after the suicide of a national-level handball player here, another girl committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan on Sunday at her employer’s house.

Victim Manisha (17) was from Chaura village, 7 kilometres from here, and caregiver at a house in Delight Colony near Hotel Delhi Plaza. Police have found a suicide note and claim that, in it, she has written that she loves her family and blames no one for her death.

House owner Kulvir Chand Sharma walked in on the body when he went to her quarters around 1pm, and informed police. The victim’s family said she had been happy with her work, which was to give care to Sharma’s aged mother.

Police sent the body to Rajindra Hospital for autopsy. Investigating officer Sunil Kumar said police were recording the statements of the victim’s family.
