A 32-year-old woman allegedly strangled her three-year-old daughter before hanging herself at her residence in West Delhi’s Nangloi area on Thursday.

Manju Singh was married to Ashish Singh who works for a footwear company. Around 11 a.m. when a neighbour visited their house and nobody responded, she raised an alarm. The police reached the spot and found Manju’s body hanging from a ceiling fan and that of her daughter Shraddha lying nearby. A suicide note was also recovered from the spot.

“In the note, the victim has written that she was suffering from an ailment for a long time and had been under depression. In the note, she also asked her husband to forgive her for killing herself and their daughter and requested him to take care of the couple’s other daughter,” said a police officer.

Manju held a post-graduation degree in psychology and had married Ashish 11 years ago.
