NEW DELHI: A 25-year-old married woman was found dead under mysterious circumstances at her house in South Delhi's Defence Colony area, police said today. Priyanka, an aspiring model who had an event management company of her own, was found dead in the wee hours yesterday.

Police found a two-page note believed to have been written by the woman before her death, a police official said. The woman got married to a businessman in January.  Priyanka's family members have alleged that her husband used to abuse her and took a huge amount of dowry. After preliminary investigation, the police registered a case under provisions of IPC and the Dowry Prohibition Act.

Priyanka's husband, who owns a few clubs in the city, has been detained for questioning, the official said. Prima facie, it appears that the woman committed suicide and an inquest has been taken up in the matter.

The woman's body has been sent to AIIMS for a postmortem examination and the cause of death is yet to be ascertained, the official said, adding that more sections are likely to be added in the FIR depending on further developments in the case.
