Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Police say that mystery surrounding the death of a 52-year-old woman at the Crossings Republik Township in Ghaziabad seems to have ended as the postmortem reports revealed that it was a case of ‘asphyxia due to hanging’. Was found dead along with her 14-year-old Labrador inside the 10th floor flat of the GH-7 high-rise in the township on Tuesday evening.
Things took a suspicious turn as her husband Madhusudan Siddhanti, 60, didn’t inform the police for nearly 20 hours and spent the entire night with the two dead bodies in the flat. After Siddhanti informed police of the incident nearly 20 hours later, the police took him to Vijay Nagar police station. Siddhanti has also said that he thought of ways of committing suicide but could not muster courage to take the extreme step. Besides the cheque bounce case, Siddhanti was also facing huge financial crunch.
