New Delhi: The body of 23-year-old television actress Moumita Saha was on Saturday found hanging from the ceiling of her room in her residence in Kolkata. 

The police told DNA that Moumita used to live alone at the rented place in south Kolkata. On Friday, unable to get through to her on phone, her parents called up her landlord who, broke open her room and found her hanging from the ceiling. 

As per reports, the police have recovered a suicide note from the flat where the actress was staying alone.

"The house owner informed us today after the door of the flat was not opened since last afternoon," DNA quoted a police officer saying. "No foul play is suspected prima facie and there has been no complaint so far. The body has been sent for a post-mortem and a case of an unnatural death has been initiated," he added. 

Police are looking into her mobile phone call list to ascertain if there was any abetment to suicide. 

Meanwhile, it has also not been ascertained if she was in an inebriated state when she took the step. A probe has been initiated into the death of the actress, who police said could be under 'severe depression'. 

As per DNA sources, Moumita had been trying to get a break in the film industry for quite some time.
