A struggling model from Delhi allegedly committed suicide in her friend’s apartment in Andheri around 12:15 am on Thursday.
The 25-year-old model, identified as Karamjeet Kaur, had flown from Delhi to Mumbai a day before Eid. She was staying at her alleged boyfriend Dipendra Singh’s Four Bungalows apartment.
According to a leading daily, the couple were going through a rough patch. Their friends had visited them on Wednesday to sort their differences. Post their visit, Singh had gone to drop them off.
After returning, Singh rang the bell since the door was locked from inside. When Kaur failed to answer the door and calls despite repeated attempts, he informed the police, who found her body hanging from the ceiling fan.
During the preliminary investigation, Amboli police found out that Kaur had been married in 2012, but filed for divorce two months later. She visited Mumbai for a modeling related assignment in early 2016, when she got acquainted with Singh.
Amboli police are currently investigating the suicide and questioning Singh. Meanwhile, Kaur’s kin have been informed and her body has been sent to Cooper hospital for post-mortem.Back to latest news
