Chitra Singh’s daughter hangs herself


Singer Chitra Singh’s daughter Monica Chaudhry committed suicide at her Bandra residence. She hanged herself from a ceiling fan. Disturbed family life is believed to be the main cause of her death. Monica 49 was Chitra’s daughter from her first husband. Later Chitra married to famous Ghazal singer Jagjit Singh.

Monica married twice but she failed to get happiness from either of her marriage. First she was married to Jahangir Chaudhury and had two sons from him, Armaan and Umer. After being separated from Jahangir, she was married to a British national called Mark Atkins. Even with her second husband she was unhappy and filed a complaint against him charging him of harassment and assault.

Due to marital problem, Monica went into depression. For last few months, Chitra and Monica were staying together. The night before she committed suicide, both chatted long and headed for their rooms. The next morning when Monica did not open her door on repeated knocking by her son, they became worried and when peeped through window, she was found hanging from fan.

Daughter’s tragic death has moved Chitra.
