A 48-year-old government school teacher and her 18-year-old daughter were found hanging at their Najafgarh home Monday morning, said police. The teacher left behind a three-page note which did not state any reason for the apparent suicides, added police. The note was pasted on a wall in the drawing room, said police, and identified the deceased as Anita Yadav and her daughter Siya.
From the contents of the note it is suspected the girl died before her mother, said police sources, adding that the hands of the girl were tied with a rope. Family members said the teacher had been on medication for depression for several years. Her husband, Satpal Yadav, who is the principal of a government school, and son, who is doing his MBBS, were in Jaipur when the bodies were discovered, said a family member.
Surender Kumar, DCP (southwest), said a relative discovered the bodies and alerted police around 6.30 am. The bodies were hanging in different rooms. “The bodies were handed over to the family after the post-mortem examination. The reason behind the extreme step is yet to be ascertained but we have been told the woman was in depression,” said Kumar.

Quoting from the note found, a source said the woman wrote, “My innocent daughter is dead. Now, no bad person will say that we do not give her work. She has gone to heaven, which was her house. My daughter, I could not give you anything despite my job.”
The note also said, “I hugged my dead daughter and loved her… otherwise… taught and learn her work. Do funeral of my daughter respectfully. She is an innocent child and she deserves it. My lovely daughter.”
On the third page, she said, “I want Guddu (son) and his father should not witness this horrific scene. We should be cremated before their arrival. Namaste all.”
A colleague of the teacher said, “She never spoke to anybody. She never even spoke to staff members.” Anita Yadav used to teach Home Science to the Class XI and Class XII.
