Khargone sub-divisional officer (police) Rohit Alava said that on Thursday, they received information about a body of a woman age between 25 – 26 years in a field on Dabria Road near a trenching ground, about four-kilometer on the outskirt of town.

Before ending her life, Bhawna updated her status on her social media, in which she wrote, 'I am committing suicide due to troubled life. Don't trouble anyone because of me, goodbye life.' Police have also found a suicide note from the spot saying she would commit suicide of her free will.

Before ending her life, Bhavna had spoken to her friend on mobile and warned of committing suicide. But before the police and family reached the spot, Bhavna had already committed suicide.

After the incident, Jaitapur police recovered the body and sent it to the district hospital for post-mortem.
