A 28-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide in her parents' home at Shipra Sun City, a residential society in Indirapuram, by hanging herself from a bolt on the top of a door with the help of a belt on March 27.
The deceased has been identified as Shivani Singh. She had returned from Brisbane, Australia, in November, 2016, after settling a divorce with her husband Sumit Kumar.
According to the police, the incident happened when Singh was alone at home. Balram Singh Yadav, sub-inspector, Shipra Sun City police outpost, said, "The woman's body was discovered by her father when he returned home after filing his house tax in Vasundhara, Ghaziabad, around 11.45 am."
"When her father returned to his flat [543-B, Regent] on the second floor, he found the main gate of the house open. The front door was left ajar and as soon as he opened it to get inside, he found Shivani hanging from the bolt on top of a different door in the flat. He called the neighbours and eventually informed us. Her mother, Geeta Singh, had gone to Meerut on March 26," Yadav added.
No suicide note has been recovered by the police.
On being asked about the queer nature of the alleged case of suicide, Yadav told City Spidey that a report is being prepared on the basis of statements of the family members. "When the police arrived at the spot, the deceased was lying on the floor and there were strangulation marks on the left side of her throat. There were injury marks on her nose too," said Yadav.
Yadav said that the family members refused taking any assistance from the police and said there was no need for an investigation. They also refused allowing a post-mortem to be conducted on the deceased's body. A case of suicide has been registered at Indirapuram Police Station.
Singh was the only child to her parents. According to her parents, mental trauma after her failed six-year-long marriage and a stressful relationship with her in-laws was the reason behind this drastic step.
Rajdev Singh, father of the deceased, said he would not file a case against his daughter’s former husband or his family. He said, "God will do justice in time."
