Mumbai: Forty-year-old homemaker wife of TV actor Manoj Goyal committed suicide at her residence at Lokhandwala at Kandivali on Saturday.
Neelima Goyal ended her life by hanging from the ceiling fan of her bedroom. Police said Neelima hanged herself between 11 am and 1 pm when she was alone at her residence on Saturday. Her eight- year-old daughter had gone for her tuition classes while her husband had gone out for work.
The incident came to light when her eight-year-old daughter returned from tuition. Since her mother was not opening the door, she kept calling her frantically. Upon entering the flat using spare keys, she found the door of the bedroom locked from inside. The girl was extremely worried and alerted her neighbours who then made a call to the Samata Nagar police since they felt something amiss.
Later, the police entered the bedroom by breaking down the door. Senior Police Inspector Dilip Yadav ruled out foul play and said, “We recovered a suicide note from the flat. It stated that Neelima had taken the extreme step under depression and nobody should be held responsible for her death.”
