It was not just one factor in life that pushed a 21-year-old girl towards suicide, but a number of them. Not only was she depressed about the atmosphere at her home, but was also worried about an unknown person, who used to send her lewd messages through Facebook. However, the situation became worse when she failed in three subjects of her first year Commerce examination and hanged herself to death on Wednesday morning.

No one at home
According to police, the deceased has been identified as Nayna alias Sanchita Suresh Wagh, a resident of Shiv Shankar Chawl in Patel Nagar area of Kandivali (west). She lived with her parents and younger brother, none of whom were at home at the time of the incident. After her father returned home, he found the main door locked from inside.

Police said that a suicide note has been recovered from the spot, which mentions that she was not happy with her life.
