A day after she was booked in a financial fraud case, a 50-year-old woman, working as an insurance agent in the city allegedly committed suicide in Kalupur locality on Saturday.
The woman, identified as Anusuya M Halani, a resident of Surya City in Maninagar, was booked on Friday by Odhav police in an alleged case of cheating. She was working as an insurance agent and had allegedly duped dozens of people by not depositing their premiums.
These people had approached the Odhav police alleging that they had handed more than Rs 5 lakh to Halani to be deposited as premiums in various post office schemes. However, the woman had failed to do so, police said.
"On Friday, Halani suddenly fell unconscious while she was out with her brother-in-law near Kalupur railway station. She was taken to Shardaben hospital where she died on Saturday," Kalupur police inspector R C Chaudhary, who suspects Halani of consuming some poison, said.
The woman did not leave any suicide note, but it seems she might have taken the step due to the allegations levelled against her at Odhav police station, he said.
