Unexpected Suicide

Legendary singer Asha Bhosles daughter Varsha committed suicide today morning. Around 12.30 p.m she shot herself. Police arrived on the spot and are investigating. No suicide note has been found from the spot yet. The entire area has been cordoned off and people are being restricted from going near the place. Varsha had attempted suicide in September 2008 by consuming a dangerously high dose of sleeping pills. She was a journalist and a freelance writer working with a well-known publishing house in Mumbai.

Varsha, 56 years old, stayed by herself in a locality same as her mothers. The second of Ashas three children, Varsha, had worked as a columnist for The Sunday Observer and Rediff. The Bhosle family had kept mum on the reason behind the suicide attempt then. But it is being believed that a private problem had been troubling Varsha for long. Asha, who was attending a function in Singapore is reportedly on her way back to India.
