The relatives of a young woman who leapt to her death in the wee hours of Monday, at Amrut Tara society in Versova, were in the city to aid in the investigation being conducted by the Versova police.
According to Ruhi Khan*s family, Ruhi had been suffering bouts of depression for theu00a0 the last two years and was being treated by a Delhi-based doctor.
Her husband rented the flat in Versova a week ago, and the couple had planned to spend time together to help Ruhi overcome her depression.
Ironically, a day prior to Ruhi committing suicide, her husband left for a business appointment.
Investigations reveal that the last call made by Ruhi before committing suicide was to her younger brother, Noor. Noor informed the police that he had spoken to her that same night.
He also said that his brother-in-law never wanted to take her to Mumbai, but she importuned him and he finally relented. Noor said, "She used to behave abnormally whenever she got depressed.
During these periods, she would attempt suicide. We used to control her by giving her water and speaking positively.
This time, however, my brother-in-law was not with her. Otherwise she would have been alive." However, the police will continue their investigation to establish whether it is a case of murder or suicide.
"We have recorded the statements of the family, wherein they have admitted that she committed suicide because she was depressed for a long time," said Additional Commissioner Amitabh Gupta.
