New Delhi:, Aug 29 (PTI) A 23-year-old pregnant woman allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the third floor of a building in Rohini's Sector-2 area, police said on Thursday.

The woman, identified as Sangeeta, on Monday allegedly jumped from the balcony of the building where she used to live with her husband, police said.
