The deceased, Divya Nair, a native of Kerala, was living with her husband havildar SVS Nair and two children at Shekhawat Lane.  “Her husband reported the incident after he found her hanging at 7.15 am,” a senior police official said.

Police have sent the body to Safdarjung Hospital for post-mortem.

“We were told that she had been suffering from a health problem and was depressed. Her parents in Kerala have been informed about the incident,” the official added.

Police said her husband worked night shift timing and was away on duty when she killed herself.
