Mumbai: On Thursday evening, Priyanka Jagannath (24), allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling fan of her beauty parlour at Garden Lane in Ghatkopar (W).
According to police, Priyanka’s mother had visited the parlour to meet her daughter at around 7:00 pm, but despite repeated knocks, when Priyanka did not open the door, her mother called a key maker and got a duplicate key made. Upon opening the door she was shocked to see Priyanka’s body hanging from the ceiling. She then immediately informed the police, who later sent the body to Rajawadi Hospital for post-mortem.
Resident of Ghatkopar, the deceased had an arranged marriage on May 1 this year. However, within a month’s time things went bitter for the deceased as she was deserted by her husband and in-laws. She then started leaving separately at Bhatwadi in Ghatkopar (West), not going to her paternal residence.
“The deceased was disturbed due to ongoing domestic issues. As of now we have registered an Accidental Death Report (ADR) and no offence has been registered as yet. We are probing into all the angles currently”, said BhimaRathod, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Ghatkopar division. However, Rathod denied any sort of domestic violence as one of the reason behind suicide.
