KOLKATA: Another model was found hanging from the ceiling of her room in her family residence in Kolkata's Patuli area on Friday, the second such incident in three days, police said.

Her mother claimed that the deceased, identified as Manjusha Niyogi, was suffering from acute depression after the death of her friend and colleague in the industry, Bidisha De Majumder, two days before.

De Majumder, a popular face in bridal make-up photo-shoots, was also found hanging inside her rented apartment in Dumdum area on Wednesday evening.

Niyogi's body was sent to a hospital for post-mortem examination to ascertain the cause of death, a police officer said.

"My daughter was severely depressed following her friend Bidisha's death and was constantly talking about her since then," Niyogi's mother said.

Popular television actor Pallabi Dey was also found hanging inside her rented apartment in Garfa area around a fortnight ago.

    There are shortcomings in the parenting process of the children in Bengali families. Parents have become selfish and are not ready to sacrifice beyond a limit for their children. Parents feel helpless when extra support is required by the children. Most of the parents convey silently to their children to select their life partners on their own. They are unable to carry out the process of identification of a life partner for their children and marry them off to lead a happy and constructive life. This is not necessarily for economic reasons. This affects the studies and the carriers of the children. Bengali society must carry out introspection of the issue. It is also of concern that there are preliminary signs of disintegration of Bengali society.
