New Delhi: A woman suffering from jaundice committed suicide by jumping off the 12th floor of a west Delhi mall Wednesday, seriously injuring a man on whom she landed, police said.

The incident happened around 11 a.m. at Westend Mall in Janakpuri.

Police identified her as Chanchal Sharma, 24. The man was a mall employee, Sunil Kumar, 28. Both were rushed to a hospital where the woman was declared dead, a police officer said.

Kumar, who suffered head injuries, was later shifted to the Mata Chanan Devi Hospital. His condition was said to be critical but stable.

"Chanchal`s father told us that his daughter was sick and tired of jaundice for a month but that could not have been the reason she killed herself," the officer said.
