A Zila Parishad member from Jhakri ward of Shimla, Kavita Kantu (27), was found hanging from a tree in summer hill forest area. She allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself with a cloth (dupatta).

Kavita had completed her MPhil and was preparing for the PhD exam. She was residing alone in a rented accommodation.

Her friends said it was difficult to believe that she committed suicide. SP Monika Bhatungru said prima facie it appeared to be a suicide case. An FSL team lifted evidence from the spot. The police probe is underway. The body has been sent for a post-mortem.—TNS
