A young woman Indian Air Force (IAF) officer Anandita Das was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her official residence at the air base in Jodhpur, police said.

Marital discord is suspected to be the reason behind the alleged suicide.
The 29-year-old squadron leader hailing from Kolkata was a flight controller. She was posted at the Jodhpur Air Force Station and was living in the officers’ quarters with her husband Squadron Leader V Nair, who flies SU-30 fighters. The couple moved to the IAF base five months ago after their transfer from Bairely, IAF sources said.

Both were commissioned into the service in 2006 and they got married in 2008. However they have no issues, the source added.

Defence spokesperson S D Goswami said the Air Force has ordered a court-of-inquiry into the incident.

According to the police, Das was found hanging from the ceiling fan at about 3 am on Wednesday by her husband who reported the matter to the officials and the police. No suicide note has been found in the house, police said. The body has been shifted to Mahatma Gandhi Hospital for postmortem.

“The officer said things will only be clear after the report of postmortem and interrogation of her husband. We are waiting for the family of the deceased to arrive here from  Kokatta. They are expected to arrive in Jodhpur on Thursday,” a police officer said.
