She also used to work at a firm located in Doon Business Park in Patel Nagar, reported TOI.
Inspector Ravindra Yadav, station house officer (SHO) Patel Nagar told TOI, "The incident took place at her home on Sunday evening after which her family members called the police.

“There was an issue with her vehicle - it used to suddenly stop due to a possible battery snag. She was asking her parents to get that fixed for the last 3-4 days only to get assurances and nothing happened. On Sunday afternoon, she had a heated argument over it with her parents. They again assured her to get it done soon. Hearing that, she went to her room and locked it from inside. Later in the evening, when her mother called her for tea, she didn't open the door. Both her parents then broke open the door with the help of neighbours to find her hanging," said Yadav.
The police officer said that no suicide note was found from the spot, but a note was found written on her palm saying, "I don't like this job, despite that I am working."
"It was probably regarding the job she was doing in the firm to support her family which didn't have a sound financial condition," said Yadav, adding that the body was sent to the mortuary for post-mortem examination.
