Sunita Singh, a 45-year-old fashion designer was found dead at her Lokhandwala residence. Her son, Lakshya, told the police that he had found the bathroom door locked from inside. When there was no response, he broke open the door to find Sunita lying in a pool of blood on the floor, reports Mumbai Mirror.

“Lakshya told the police that he was upset and first went to a temple. He then visited a jeweller, family friend, who lives in the vicinity, to seek help in shifting his mother to hospital. He said that when the jeweller told him to contact the police, Lakshya summoned a private ambulance. He also simultaneously contacted his relatives in Delhi. The residents of the building came to know of the incident when the ambulance reached the building, and by the time the residents informed the police, it was afternoon. The police shifted the body to Cooper Hospital for post-mortem,’’ an officer from Oshiwara police station  told Mirror. 

A cop investigating the case told the daily, “Lakshya told the police that Sunita used to sometimes smoke marijuana. However, it would be confirmed only once the postmortem report is available.” Sunita was a resident of Cross Gate building. She shared the flat with her son, Lakshya, 23, and his fiancée Ashpriya Banerjee, 22.

Sources told the daily that the police found the bathroom washbasin damaged and tilted. Some residents of the building told the police that they had heard the family dog bark post midnight. Meanwhile, the Oshiwara police has questioned Lakshya and Ashpriya.

“For now, an accidental death report (ADR) has been registered. We are investigating the case. The woman’s son and his fiancée are being questioned. We will also question the jeweller and the person who had brought the private ambulance to the building,” Senior Police Inspector Sailesh Pasalwar told Mirror. Sunita was originally from Panipat, and had lost her husband a few years ago.
