In the first case, Shirin D'souza, 35, assistant manager with the Kurla branch of the National Stock Exchange, committed suicide on Thursday allegedly due to health ailments. The Kurla police said that D'souza was a resident of Sahar in Andheri (East).
"Around 6pm, D'souza jumped off the lobby of his sixth floor office at Kohinoor towers. The security guard alerted the police. D'souza was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead," said an official from the Kurla police on condition of anonymity as he is not authorised to speak to the media.
According to the police, D'souza had been suffering from a stomach infection and 40 different medicines were found in his bag. The police suspect that his health ailment may have driven him to take the extreme step.
In another incident, Andheri resident Rashmi Hasora, 20, was found hanging from her ceiling on Wednesday afternoon. Hasora was to get married in a few months. No suicide note was found from the spot.
According to the MIDC police, Hasora's mother had gone out for shopping when the incident occurred. When she returned, despite knocking several times, she did not receive any response from her daughter. She then broke the door open with the help of her neighbours and took Hasora to a local hospital. Hasora was declared dead on arrival.
"Since no suicide note has been found, we cannot ascertain the reason behind her suicide," said Dipak Bagwe, police inspector, MIDC police station.
Hasora's parents told the police that she got engaged in October and was to get married in December. Her body has been sent for post-mortem to Cooper hospital.
