Twenty-nine-year-old daughter of the principal of the Delhi Public School, R.K. Puram allegedly committed suicide at his residence on Tuesday night.

The principal of DPS, R.K. Puram, Dr D.R. Saini, lives with his family in the campus of the prestigious South Delhi school. The deceased, identified as Anjana Saini, had hanged herself from the ceiling fan of her bedroom. She was not married and worked for a private firm in Gurgaon as a senior manager.

The Delhi police ruled out any foul play and revealed that a suicide note had been recovered from Anjana’s room, which did not “blame anyone.”

Sources in the police said initial inquiry had revealed that Anjana was reportedly upset over arguments about her marriage at home.

Anjana SainiAnjana became upset on Tuesday evening after an argument with her family over her marriage. “Anjana went to her room at the first floor of the house about 9.15 pm. After about half-an-hour, her family members went upstairs to check on her. Finding the door ajar, they opened it and found her hanging with a ‘chunni’ from the ceiling fan,” the police said. “Immediately, Anjana’s brother, Jai Saini, removed the chunni and rushed her to the nearby Fortis Hospital where she was declared brought dead by the doctors.”

The hospital administration informed the police about the incident and a team from the R.K. Puram police station reached the hospital. “The body was taken into custody and the autopsy was conducted,” added the police.

Another team, including senior police officials, reached Anjana’s residence as well. “A suicide note was found lying near the television in her room,” said the investigating officials. The note read: “I don’t want to hurt anyone. I think because of me you are hurt. I am committing suicide. No one is to be blamed for it.”

Anjana’s funeral was conducted at the Lodhi Road crematorium on Wednesday after the police handed over her body to her family on conclusion of the autopsy.

The police sources said during initial investigation it had emerged that Anjana was a “manglik (a condition associated with some specific faults in a person’s astrological chart),” which posed some difficulties in finalising her marriage.

“She was upset due to this reason,” said a police official, adding, “We are also trying to find out whether she had someone in her life whom she wanted to marry, but could not due to this problem.”

“The family had been visiting astrologers as well, a few of whom had reportedly objected to her marriage with a non-manglik man.” Astrologers normally suggest that people with this fault in their astrological charts should marry each other.

The police is questioning Anjana’s family in connection with the case. “We suspect that she was depressed and are trying to ascertain a few things,” added the police.
