Bengali TV actress Moumita Saha has committed suicide by hanging from the ceiling of her room in her flat in southern part of the city’s Reagent Park area, police said.
Acting on a call from neighbours, police broke open the door of the flat of Moumita Saha (23) and found her hanging from the ceiling of a room of the flat, which she had rented for the last couple of months, they further added.
It is being said that when her parents were unable to get through to her on phone, than they called up her landlord who, at about 10 pm on Friday broke open her room and found her hanging from the ceiling with her ‘dupatta’.
Moumita was a struggling actress and lived alone in Kolkata. A suicide note was found which reflected she was suffering from mental depression owing to lack of professional success.
It has also not been ascertained if she was in an inebriated state. Police said it would be clearer once the post mortem report arrived.
Sources in the entertainment world said that she had been trying to get a break in the film industry for some time, but had no success so far which was the main reason for her being depressed.
