The incident came to light when the landlord found the cab abandoned and could not locate her.

The landlord informed the police and police rushed to the spot, but found her dead.

Police officials said that the deceased was living alone and wanted to shift to her hometown in Andhra Pradesh. She had also informed her landlord about shifting her gas connection to Andhra Pradesh. Police officials however said it was clear case of suicide but they could not provide convincing explanation about the unlocked door.

An officer said the door was unlocked but closed tight, so that no one could enter inside. The victim also did not leave behind any suicide note.

A resident of AP, Bharathi had been living in the city for the past 10 years. She worked in an NGO before taking up driving as a profession.
