The Lieutenant Colonel-rank officer was found hanging at her official accommodation on Wednesday with a dupatta around her neck, the police said. “Following a complaint from her husband, we have registered an abetment of suicide case against a fellow officer of the rank of Brigadier. Further investigation is on,” said Namrata Patil, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 5), on Sunday.
