On suspicion, they broke open the door found Karishma hanging from the ceiling using her dupatta.
Family members and neighbours rushed her to the Chromepet government hospital but there she was declared dead. On information, the Chitlapakkam police registered a case and are investigating the reason behind the suicide.
