A 32-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself at her rented accommodation at South-west Delhi’s Palam Village on Sunday evening. According to the police, the deceased has been identified as Mala Verma. A senior police officer said that they have found a one-page suicide note from the possession of the deceased.
“However, no reason has been mentioned in the suicide note,” said the officer. Police said that they will question the husband and other family members of Mala to establish what triggered her to take such an extreme step.

Police said that after the post-mortem, the body of the deceased will be handed over to her family.
Mala, a native of Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh was married to one Sanjeev Verma. The woman is survived by her husband and a four-year-old baby boy.
