Two held in connection with 'suicide' of domestic help



Ghaziabad: A bank manager and a Delhi-based placement agency owner have been arrested in connection with the alleged suicide of an 18-year-old domestic help, police said.

Mohit Aggarwal, manager at a multi-national bank, was yesterday arrested by Indira Puram Police for allegedly keeping his domestic help Lipi in captivity, which forced her to end her life, police said.

Munna Lal, whose agency had placed her in Aggarwal's house, has also been arrested in this connection, they said.

Lipi, who hailed from Assam, allegedly committed suicide on Monday after jumping off the fifth floor of Aggarwal's house in Indira Puram, station house officer Rajesh Dwivedi said.
