A 31-year-old housewife committed suicide by jumping off from a verandah of a room situated in a three-storeyed building at Karaya on Friday.
Police said that the victim Preeti Jaju used to stay in a rented flat in the same house with other members of her family. She got married to one Ritesh Jaju a few years ago and they have two daughters.
She went to the second floor of the building after her daughters went to school and there was no one as such in the flat. Local people suddenly heard a thud and came out of their houses. They found the woman lying in a pool of blood and took her to Calcutta National Medical College and Hospital where she was declared brought dead.
Police sent the body for an autopsy and initiated a probe in this connection. The police are yet to ascertain the exact cause that forced the woman to take the extreme step but suspect that some trouble in her family might be the reason behind her death. The police are also not ruling out the possibility of the accidental fall of the victim.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the victim's husband is a businessman and he shifted to Kolkata with all his family members a year ago from Delhi. They got both their daughters admitted to a private English medium school in the city.
The police didn't find any suicide note in her room and her family members too failed to give any clue for which the woman committed suicide.
