NEW DELHI — A 30-year-old Mumbai woman has committed suicide by hanging herself with a nylon rope inside her Powai flat Wednesday morning, fearing that she will never get married owing to being short, as said by her family to the police.

The woman had returned a year ago after finishing her MBA from London and was searching for better opportunities in private sector companies but was unsuccessful in it, reported local media.

Originally from Punjab, Jaskamal Sehgal and her family had settled in Mumbai several years ago.

Her family found her body hanging upon returning. The door was open and police is probing the reason behind this.

Her family consists of her parents and two brothers; while her father runs a shop, one of the brothers works in USA as an electrical engineer.
