Police said the woman worked at a pharmaceutical company in Phase 1 and lived alone. As she had not reported to work for days and her mobile phone was also switched off, a co-worker visited her house and found the door bolted from the inside. He informed the house owner, who further alerted the police.

On breaking the door, the police team, including Mataur SHO Gabbar Singh, discovered the woman’s decomposed body hanging from the ceiling fan. They were offered first-aid after suffering nausea due to the foul smell.

The body was moved to the mortuary of the civil hospital in Phase 6 for autopsy.

SHO Maur said the woman hailed from Amritsar and was living in Mohali for the past two years. Her father had passed away when she was a child and her mother had also died recently. Her siblings are settled abroad. They have been informed.

Investigators said prima facie, it appeared that the woman hanged herself two days ago. Inquest proceedings have been initiated in the matter.
