A 24-year-old woman software engineer, who was apparently suffering from depression, allegedly committed suicide at her house, police said today.
Deepa Radariya, originally from Mumbai and working at a software firm here for the last six months, yesterday hanged herself at her apartment in Ahinsa tower on MG Road, Tukoganj police station in-charge Dilip Singh Choudhary said.
The woman used to live in the apartment along with her colleague Sneha, he said.
Deepa used to get depressed even over small issues, the police officer said quoting her friend. She was not keeping well for the last three-four days. Sneha wanted to stay at home to take care of her, but Deepa forced her to attend office, he said.
On Monday, when Sneha called Deepa from office, the latter did not respond. Later, Sneha reached home and when her friend did not open the door even after repeated knocking, she called the neighbours who broke open the door and found Deepa hanging, Choudhary said.
The software professional was immediately rushed to hospital where she was declared dead, he said. A case has been registered and a detailed investigation was on, the police officer added.
Budget earmarked Rs 3.40 crore for the Nirbhaya Fund, to be used for the upkeep of security of women.
