A 27-year-old woman, who was suffering from mental illness, allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the third floor of a building in Southeast Delhi's Tughlakabad Extension on Monday morning, police said.
Joshna Murmur, a native of Malda in West Bengal, had come to Delhi in August and was working as a domestic help here, they said.
She was sent to work as maid at two places -- Kavi Nagar in Ghaziabad and Sarita Vihar in Southeast Delhi -- by a placement agency. But both the employers sent her back, complaining that she did not work properly and cited language problem as the other reason, a senior police official said.
