A struggling model from Delhi was found to have hanged herself in her rented apartment in Andheri late on Wednesday morning.

According to the Amboli police, the deceased has been identified as Karamjeet Kaur (27), a Delhi resident, who had come to Mumbai to work as a model earlier this year. She had been staying in Four Bungalows with her ex - boyfriend Jitendra Singh since February, and the two were in a relationship.

“Relations had soured between Ms. Kaur and Mr. Singh over the past few months and they were having frequent disagreements. Ms. Kaur had gone to Delhi to visit her family last month and returned eight days ago, after which they had another fight, at the end of which Mr. Singh told her that he was ending the relationship,” said an officer with the Amboli police.

They were staying together till one of them found another place to stay, and during this time, their fights continued.

On Tuesday, they had another fight, and some of their friends had to come to their residence to settle the matter. Mr. Singh subsequently went out and returned home in the early hours of Wednesday. When Ms. Kaur did not open the door despite repeated ringing of the doorbell and calls on her cellphone, Mr. Singh called the police. “We broke open the door and found Ms. Kaur hanging from the ceiling fan in the living room. She was rushed to Cooper Hospital in Vile Parle, where she was declared brought-dead,” the officer said.

Mumbai Police spokesperson DCP Ashok Dudhe said, “No suicide note was found in the house. An accidental death report has been registered and further inquiries are under way.”

The police recorded Mr. Singh’s statement till late on Thursday evening and are making inquiries with the friends who had come to resolve the fight that he had with Ms. Kaur on Tuesday.
