Ex-Miss India Nafisa Joseph kills herself



A few months late finding out about this but if you are as blown away as I am then it's cool right? What a waste.

Former Miss India and VJ Nafisa Joseph committed suicide last night, apparently in depression over her marriage to a Bandra businessman that was to take place next month.

Nafisa was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her rented flat at Versova, at about 9 pm.

According to preliminary information available with Versova police, Nafisa was to be married to Gautam Kanduja (28) on August 28.

Gautam who is already married, first met Nafisa at a nightclub a year ago.

Police have been told that the two had an altercation over his divorce papers and that this had upset her.

Gautam, who lives at Pali Hill, in suburban Bandra, deals in automobile parts.
