Ghaziabad: A woman journalist working with the Rajya Sabha Television was found dead at her residence here in mysterious circumstances, police said Tuesday.
Milita Dutta Mandal (31), a producer in Rajya Sabha Television, was found in a critically injured condition in the basement of Mahagun Magic Apartments in Vaishali area Monday midnight.
A resident of flat number 809 on the eighth floor, Mandal had reached home around 11 p.m. At about 11.30 pm, residents heard a scream and found her lying in the basement, while her two-and-half-year-old baby girl was crying non-stop.
Her husband, Surya Jyoti Mandal, who works with a private company in Noida, and other residents took her to Max hospital in Delhi where doctors declared her dead.
"We are investigating the case from all possible angles. Let the post mortem report reach us then only we would be able to comment. Prima facie, it seems that she was pushed in a fit of anger by her husband. The balcony has been found broken which might have happened by a strong push.
"But it is still a mystery... nothing can be said authoritatively till the investigation is complete," said Superintendent of Police (City) Shiv Hari Meena.
