Radio jockey's wife jumps to death from 10-storey building within two months of marriage

The couple got married on November 24 last year and had recently been to Bangkok together.

Ahmedabad: In a shocking incident, a 28-year-old woman, who had recently married a popular city-based radio jockey around two months back, on Thursday allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the terrace of a 10-storey residential building in Anandnagar area, police said.

According to Anandnagar police inspector P V Jadeja, victim Bhumi Desai had married RJ Kunal, who is employed at a private FM radio station in Ahmedabad, in November last year. Bhumi committed suicide by jumping off the terrace of Sachin Tower near Shyamal Crossroad in the city, he said.

Police investigations have revealed that she had gone to the building in her car with the motive of killing herself.

“Before coming to the spot, she had sent an SMS to one Mitesh Soni around 2 PM, stating that she is going to commit suicide at Sachin Tower and then she jumped off the terrace at around 2.30 pm,” Jadeja said.

“They had got married on November 24 last year. Recently, they had been to Bangkok together and had come back on January 18,” Jadeja said.

“We have registered a case of accidental death and sent the body for post-mortem. We are yet to find out the exact reason behind her extreme step,” he added.

Meanwhile, one of Bhumi's relatives told reporters that some differences had cropped up between the two during their Thailand trip.

"Bhumi had come in contact with Kunal after winning a contest and decided to marry him...But, we learned that some differences had developed between them during their trip to Thailand. She also told his mother about it. But we don't know why she took this extreme step," said one of the relatives.

After that, she had reportedly stopped living at Kunal's house and had shifted with her parents.
