A 21-year-old Nepalese woman is believed to have committed suicide by hanging herself from the branch of a tree in the Cubbon Park on Saturday night. The incident came to light on Sunday morning after a security guard saw the body and called the police. 

Santoshi N, who worked at a spa in UB City and lived in D'Souza Layout with her father Kabir Raja, may have taken the extreme step as she could not marry her boyfriend, Naresh, the police said.

Santoshi and Naresh, a private firm employee, had been dating for the past few months and wanted to get married after convincing their families. The couple went to Naresh's house on Saturday and talked to his parents, but they shot down the idea, saying Santoshi belongs to a different community and region. Santoshi was so upset that she fought with Naresh and his family. 

Hours later, she went missing. Her father went looking for her and contacted her friends,  but nobody knew her whereabouts. The police later contacted him after finding the body.

Raja has filed a police complaint, accusing Naresh of abetting his daughter's suicide. They are also looking out for Raja, who has gone missing.
