A domestic help, working in the house of a chartered accountant, ended her life by allegedly jumping from the ninth floor of an apartment in Mahadevapura, Bengaluru.
The 20-year-old help, who belonged to Assam, used to take care of the chartered accountant's mother.
The police are yet to ascertain the reason behind the alleged suicide but are probing all possible angles, including monetary issue and harassment by employers.
The domestic help, Phoolmuni, was hired by the chartered accountant through a Delhi-based agency. This agency was responsible for her background check and getting her work as a domestic help.
According to police, Phoolmuni was with the elderly woman while other members of the family had gone out for shopping on Monday.
The security guards in the apartment complex suddenly heard a loud sound and rushed to see from where it came. They found Phoolmuni lying in a pool of blood.
The incident took place at 10.30 pm on Monday.
Police are trying to contact the domestic help's family and are questioning her employers.
