"The girl, a native of Bangladesh, who works as a domestic help in south Delhi, had gone missing from her home in Vasant Kunj Friday. A passerby spotted her near Rithala Metro station Saturday in north Delhi and took her to Vijay Vihar police station," said a police officer.

Police informed her parents and asked the girl to stay in the ladies changing room, where she hung herself from a ceiling with her stole. A police personnel spotted her body around 5 p.m.
