Mumbai: Veteran singer Asha Bhosle's 56 year old daughter, Varsha Bhosle, was found dead at her Prabhakunj residence on Monday morning.
Allegedly Varsha shot herself with a licensed revolver at point blank range.
Mumbai Police is now verifying how Varsha got the revolver. She had attempted suicide twice in the past, in 2008 and 2010.
As per reports, it seems to be a sheer negligence from the part of Asha Bhosle's household. "The revolver had to be kept in a safe place (locker) since Varsha had developed suicidal tendencies in past," police source said.
But since Asha was away from her home to Singapore to attend a musical event, she is believed to have told her personal assistance to keep the weapon handy in case of theft or burglary at home.
The police are questioning the household maid, managers and family members to figure out whether it was negligence or was Varsha aware of the whereabouts of the weapon," said another source.
