Photos: 27-year-old former Indian model commits suicide, leaves note which said she was mentally and physically abused by husband

bA 27 year old woman allegedly committed suicide by
hanging herself in her apartment in south Delhi’s
Defence Colony Friday night, March 27. The woman,
identified as Priyanka Kapoor, was found hanging
from the ceiling fan, said police. Her family blamed
Priyanka’s husband Nitin Chawla, for her death,
claiming that he abused her. He has been arrested
and sent to judicial custody.
That fateful night, the former model's mother was
unable to reach her on the phone. When the family
went to her residence, they were prompted to call
the police after finding the door locked from inside.
According to the police, at 12.30 am on March 27,
they received a call from Priyanka’s family
members, who said her room was locked from
inside and she was not responding to their pleas to
open the door.
"We broke open the door with help from fire
brigade personnel," said Deputy
Commissioner of Police (south) Prem Nath.
The sub-divisional magistrate is conducting an
inquiry, said Prem Nath, adding that police had
recorded Priyanka’s sister Dimpi’s statement. “Dimpi
alleged that Chawla subjected her to physical and
mental abuse over dowry demands,” he said.
A senior police officer said a two-page suicide note
was recovered from the spot, in which Priyanka,
reportedly said she was scared of her husband.
In the note, she said
‘This is the biggest mistake of my life...
marrying him... I am scared’,” said the officer.
A case has been registered against Chawla under
Section 115 (abatement of offence punishable with
death or imprisonment for life) , 498A (husband or
relative... subjecting her to cruelty), 304B (where
death is caused by any burns or bodily injury or
occurs otherwise) and 34 (common intention).
Police said Chawla, who runs a pub in GK II market,
was facing financial problems. “He had not been able
to pay his rent for the last two months,” said the
officer, adding that the couple often fought over
money issues.
Priyanka married Nitin in January this year. She
worked at an event management company and had
met Nitin at his pub, said police. Nitin has two
children from his first marriage and his son lived
with him and Priyanka, said police.
Priyanka reportedly was not happy about this
arrangement, said police. However, her family said
this was not true as Priyanka loved children.
"I have known grief, I have known happiness,
sadness and emotions, but my husband made
me helpless for the first time" the note reads.
"Nitin has a rape case on him registered in
Mumbai. I never knew he would do so bad to
me. He beat me like a devil just after a month
of wedding. When I asked him to call my
family he beat me hard. I had married Nitin
just because he told me he loves me
unconditionally. But now he asks me to leave
his house. I broke my relations with my
mother just because of him. He is a selfish
Priyanka further goes on to write how she had
expected to receive love and instead was only
subjected to pain and regular beatings for petty
issues. Priyanka also accused her mother-in-law
stating that according to her, 'whatever Nitin did was
not wrong'.
"Nitin wanted me to leave his house, so I am
leaving the world."
According to senior police officials the couple used
to fight a lot as was confirmed by some neighbours
as well.
"The accused had also not paid house rent and
as a result confrontations between the couple
had ensued. He also had issues with her going
to clubs. When Nitin's 10-year-old son from
his earlier marriage came home, Nitin had an
argument with Priyanka. He asked her to leave
the house," said the officer.
The suicide note also states how the former model
spent her last moments waiting for her husband.
"Nitin has not come home since the last three
days and only sent a message on WhatsApp to
vacate his home," the note reads.
