New Delhi, May 4
A 27-year-old married woman allegedly committed suicide by jumping from Kirti Nagar Metro station to the road below this afternoon. Sources said that the woman, Aarti, was upset by dowry demands of in-laws.

The incident occurred at 12.30 pm. Aarti jumped from a platform to the road below it. She was rushed to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries. No suicide note was found.

Aarti's father, Ratan Singh, has lodged a police complaint. He has alleged that Aarti killed herself because her in-laws were harassing her for dowry. Since Aarti died within seven years of her marriage, a sub-divisional magistrate inquiry has been initiated.

Aarti lived with her in-laws in a DDA flat at Madipur in Punjabi Bagh. Her husband Anil Yadav works with the Indian Army. They have a 15-month-old child.

Yesterday, a 25-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the terrace of the MG Road Metro station in Gurgaon.

Sources said that her in-laws had harassed her for dowry. The woman was employed with HDFC Bank.

Personal reasons behind Danaís suicide: Amity

New Delhi, May 4
Officials of Amity Group today asserted that there was no discrimination against the Meghalayan girl student, Dana Silva Sangma, who had committed suicide in her hostel room in Gurgaon and hinted that she took the step due to personal reasons.

Dana was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her hostel room on April 24.

Savita Mehta, vice-president of Amity Group, said the media hype around the suicide was because she was the niece of Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma. Mehta also claimed that there were "political connections" to the case.

Padmakali Banerjee, the pro vice-chancellor of Amity University, Haryana, at a press conference held in Delhi today said Dana's suicide could not be attributed to "racial or regional discrimination". Dana was reportedly caught using mobile phone in an exam.

ďAfter catching Dana using phone during the exam, neither the invigilator tore her answerbook nor did he use abusive language against her. There are a large number of witnesses to this," said said Major General (retd.) B S Suhag, deputy vice-chancellor, Amity University. ó TNS

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, May 4
Minister of State for Revenue AK Walia said that the city government was committed to honouring the judgement of the Supreme Court on banning the transfer of property through General Power of Attorney (GPA) and Agreement to Sell.

The apex court order will be implemented in true spirit. This will immensely benefit the citizens of Delhi, Walia said.

Henceforth, the GPA will only be allowed in respect of transfer of custody, maintenance and authorised use of the property and not to effect change of title in any case. It is also made clear that the GPA holders will not be able to transfer the property unless it is agreed upon by the owner.

However, they will be able to execute the sale deed provided the owner agrees to it and amount of transaction is credited in the name of the owner, press release said.

The release said that any transaction effected prior to October 11, 2011, through the GPA, Agreement to Sell and Will shall not be affected in any way and transactions after October 11, 2011, will require regularisation in the form of proper sale deeds by payment of the difference in the stamp duty and completion of other relevant formalities.

This was decided at a meeting chaired by the Revenue Minister. The meeting was also attended by the Divisional Commissioner Vijay Dev and other senior officials of the revenue department.

The apex court issued an order on October 11, 2011, to the effect that property transfers through the General Power of Attorney, Agreement to Sell and Will shall not be allowed with immediate effect. Further, transferring the properties through proper sale deed will have to be executed giving full financial details and payment of due stamp duty.
