An employee of Jet Airways allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself in her apartment in Mehrauli area of South Delhi, police said on Wednesday.
The employee has been identified as Bharti Sharma (30).
According to NWI reporter Jitender Bhati, magisterial inquiry has been initiated after Bharti’s family members alleged that her husband and in-laws were harassing her for dowry, police said.
The victim’s father, Narinder Kumar Sharma, a journalist, said, “They got married February 24 this year. It was a love marriage, as Tarun earlier worked with her in the same airline. But after marriage, Tarun and his parents were pressuring her for money and forcing her to take a loan. This was torturing her mentally. Due to this pressure, she was stressed and took this extreme step.”
Bharti’s husband Tarun has been taken into custody, police added.
