Gurgaon: None arrested for maid's death despite an FIR, kin of deceased soughed slogans against cops

Despite an FIR registered under Section 306 of the Indian Penal Code against the employers of the deceased, no one has been arrested. The kin of deceased have suspected a foul play and have claimed that they had beaten her up.

A 18-year-old domestic help had allegedly committed suicide, following a quarrel with her employers on Friday night. Gurugram Police are yet to arrest anyone despite an FIR been registered.

The deceased Ranjitha Brahma, who belonged to lower Aasam's Boro community allegedly jumped off from eleventh floor of upscale Carlton estate condominium in DLF phase 5 at around 11pm. The kin of deceased have suspected foul play as employers did not allow them to meet her on same day.

They assembled in front of the police station on Sunday and soughed slogans against the cops for not arresting the accused.

"Ranjitha wanted to quit her job but her employers Rohit Mehta and his wife Sonal Mehta did not allow her to do so. They had beaten her up.

"Blunt wounds were found on her body. We have a strong suspicion that she could be pushed or might have accidentally fallen down during the argument," said a relative, who requested not to be named. He also alleged that the police are putting pressure on them to cremate her body and also not handing over to them the postmortem report.

SHO of Sushant Lok police station, Gaurav Phogat told Mail Today that an FIR has been registered under Section 306 of the Indian Penal Code, against the employers of the deceased.

He added that the accused were allegedly present in the flat during the incident.

"We have not found any suicide note which might indicate something wrong had happened before the incident.

"We have the autopsy report and now waiting for FSL report to corroborate with the statements of the two accused," Phogat said. He added "They have not been arrested so far and we have asked them not to leave the NCR till the investigation gets over."

Both the accused work with multi-national companies. Rohit, currently employed in the banking sector, holds a top executive post.
