A 22-year-old woman from Mizoram allegedly committed suicide by hanging, in a room at a lodge in Triplicane early on Thursday.

Triplicane police identified the deceased as Pooja, who checked in to the lodge on Monday along with her lover, who is said to be working as a cook in a restaurant in the city. On Wednesday morning, he left the room and did not return.

Early on Thursday, a member of the housekeeping staff of the lodge spotted Pooja hanging from the ceiling using a stole.

He informed the hotel manager who alerted the police. A Triplicane police team reached the lodge, recovered Pooja’s body and sent it for post-mortem.

Pooja left behind a note stating her failed relationship led her to commit suicide, the police said.
