Mumbai: Actress Noor Malabika Das found dead in apartment

Noor Malabika Das, a former air hostess with Qatar Airways and an actress, has allegedly died by suicide. Police recovered her body from her flat in Lokhandwala on June 6. Noor is believed to have hanged herself from the bedroom fan.

According to police sources, the incident came to light when neighbours reported a foul smell emanating from the flat, prompting them to inform the Oshiwara police. Upon breaking the door and entering the flat, police found Noor’s body hanging from the ceiling fan in a decomposed condition. The police collected medicines and her mobile phone and diary during the search of the house.

After conducting a panchnama, the body was taken to Goregaon’s Siddharth hospital for a post-mortem. Despite efforts to contact her family, no one came forward. Consequently, the police performed her last rites on Sunday with the assistance of the Mamdani Health and Education Trust NGO, which handles the cremation of unclaimed bodies in the city. “We spoke to her family. They had returned to their native place two weeks ago. Investigation is underway,” said an officer.  

Das, 37, hailed from Assam and had worked as a lead actress in many Hindi films and web series, such as “Siskiyaan,” “Walkaman,” “Teekhi Chatni,” “Jaghanya Upaya,” “Charamsukh,” “Dekhi Andekhi,” “Backrod Hustale” and so on.  Her project for Amazon Prime, "The Trial" which is an adaptation of “The Good Wife,” features Kajol and Jisshu Sengupta. A close friend of Noor, actor Aloknath Pathak, said, “I am saddened by this. I have known Noor for years and worked with her in many films and series.”

“Until last month, her family was living with her in Mumbai. The family returned to the village a week ago. She was living in this flat on rent,” he added.
