Mumbai, Jun 26: Former Miss Mauritius Viveka Babajee was found dead in her Bandra residence on Friday, Jun 25 evening.
The model's body was found hanging from the ceiling fan of her residence. Police is almost certain that this is a case of suicide. Some media reports also suggest that a suicide note has been recovered.
As per reports, Viveka was depressed due to a break up, which is primarily being seen as the reason that led her into taking the extreme step.
Earlier, the model had reportedly called her parents, who are based in Mauritius, to tell them that she was going far away from them. Babajee was staying alone in Mumbai. However, it is learnt that her sister was in India.
27-year-old Viveka was an Indian supermodel and a former Miss World participant. She is probably more popular for her roles in Kamasutra movies during the 1990s. She has also featured in several advertisements as well as appeared in few Bollywood films between 2000 and 2004.
