MUMBAI: An 18-year-old girl from Andhra Pradesh allegedly committed suicide Thursday by hanging herself in her hotel room at suburban Andheri, Mumbai. Police said Ranjala Kusuma Shrisambhavi was found hanging to the ceiling fan with her dupatta at around 10 a.m. in her room in Hotel Highway Residency by an attender.

Ranjala’s family had registered a missing person complaint at a police station in the state on March 3 after she did not return home.

According to police, Ranjala had checked into the hotel on Tuesday at around 1.30 p.m. saying she had come to Mumbai to attend an interview. “The reason for the extreme step is not known. A suicide note written in Hindi as well as in Telugu was found in the room. She held nobody responsible for her death and stated that her body be handed over to her mother,” a police officer at Vile Parle police station said.

While checking into the hotel, Ranjala mentioned her address as Qutubullapur, Rajahmundry. Ranjala had dinner last night and when this morning, the hotel reception called her up on the intercom in her room to inquire if she wanted to extend her stay, she did not attend the calls.

Subsequently, an attender went to the room and found her hanging, police said.

“We managed to track down her address. Her family has been informed about the incident. Ranjala’s mother and brother are coming to Mumbai to take custody of the body,” the police officer said.
