Mumbai: 52-year-old woman working as domestic help at singer’s house commits suicide

On Wednesday, a 52-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide by jumping off a high rise in Goregaon. The woman was working as domestic help in the high-rise.

According to Indian Express, the woman has been identified as Anjali Ramesh Santra, Anjali was employed at residence of singer Aneek Dhar — a jury member with reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. The incident took place around 2 pm in Sadadhan Co-operative Society when Anjali went for a bath in the common washroom.

An officer from Goregaon police station told the leading daily, “She was inside the washroom for a long time and didn’t answer repeated knocks on the door. Following this, Dhar’s wife asked the building watchman to enter the washroom from the duct. The watchman did so but Santra was nowhere to be found. They then started looking for her on the ground floor, where she was found dead.”

Later, she was rushed to the hospital, where she was declared dead on admission. Anjali was employed by the Dhar family as a domestic help on April 1 through an agency. As she was not working properly, the family complained to the agency and had asked for a replacement. Cops have found no suicide note so far. The cops are now trying to contact Anjali’s family in West Bengal.
