Reeta, who was the Joint Managing Director of the Lanson Group, was found hanging at her residence in Nungambakkam here on Thursday. Lanson is the Tamil Nadu dealer of car manufacturer Toyota.
The incident came to light when one of the supervisors of the company went to her residence, but he couldn’t get any response. In shock, the supervisor informed the police and her husband.
Police broke the door to get in and were shocked to see Reeta hanging from the ceiling. The body was taken to Kilpauk Medical College for a post-mortem.
It seems like Reeta’s husband, the MD of the company wasn’t there at the house when the incident took place.
A case of unnatural death under Section 174 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) is filed, and the police are conducting the investigation. No suicide note recovered, the police said.
After basic investigation, the police found out that there was a rift between Reeta and her husband which had prompted her to end her life. The 49-year-old is survived by her husband and two children.
