23-year-old Bengali TV actress Moumita Saha was found hanging in her room at Ashoknagar in South Kolkata. Moumita hailed from Bandel of Hooghly district and used to stay at the rented place.
Acting on a call from neighbours, police broke open the door of the flat of Moumita Saha and found her hanging in the room of the flat, which she had rented for the last couple of months. A suicide note was recovered from the flat which hints that she was going through depression due to lack of professional success.
A probe has been initiated into the death of the actress, who police said could be under "severe depression''. We have gone through her social networking site where her last post appeared to be written out of depression. We are going through her mobile call list," Police said. Her call list is being examined to ascertain if there was any abetment to suicide. It hasn't been confirmed whether she was in an inebriated state or not. It will be clear once the postmortem reports arrive.
Media reports say that she was struggling to establish a foothold in the showbiz industry but was not able to bag success so far.
