A woman constable attached to the special branch of Pune City Police is suspected to have died by suicide by hanging herself at her residence in Wakad. Police have identified the deceased as Shraddha Jaybhaye (28), a resident of Kaveri Nagar Police Line in Wakad.
Police said Jaybhaye was married and her husband, who works in the Indian Navy, is posted in Kerala. The couple have a daughter.
Police said Jaybhaye had her weekly off on Monday. After completing her duty on Sunday, she dropped her daughter off at a relative’s place, before going back home.
