An aspiring actor allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the terrace of her apartment in Mumbai late last night.
The woman, believed to be in her early twenties, has been identified as Pearl Punjabi. She had been struggling for a break in films for a long time without any luck, according to the police.
A security guard at her Oshiwara apartment building, Bipin Kumar Thakur, said, “It happened between 12:15 and 12:30 am. There was some noise, I thought somebody was shouting on the road. We went there to check what was happening. When I came back, I heard sounds from the third floor where she lived.”
The police said Ms Punjabi was mentally disturbed and reportedly had frequent fights with her mother. She had allegedly attempted suicide twice before but was saved.
