Chennai: In a suspected suicide case, a businesswoman was found dead at her residence in Nungambakkam.
Reeta Lankalingam was the joint managing director at Lanson Group – India.
This morning, the family’s domestic help came for work at her house on Kothari Road and kept ringing the bell, but no one opened the door. Later, Yesupadam, a house staff, also came and they alerted the police.
Police broke open the door and found Reeta in an unconscious state. She was rushed to a hospital but was declared brought dead. Her body was sent to Government Kilpauk Hospital for post mortem.
Preliminary inquiries said that her husband, M Lankalingam, who is also part of Lanson Toyota, stayed at a hotel in the city last night. The couple were having a hard time with the business due to the slowdown in the automotive sector.
Reeta was a commerce graduate and was trained in effective personal leadership by Leadership Management International – USA.
