        Reshma Trenchil had thrown her son Garud (10) from the 12 floor of Tulipia building, where she has a flat, and then jumped to death on Monday, an official said.

        'A suicide note we have found claims the people in a flat on the 11th floor were constantly complaining against her, mainly over noise emanating from her 12th floor flat, to the housing society management as well as local police station,' the official said.

        Based on the suicide note, which names three people, a 33-year-old pilot with an international airline has been arrested for abetment to suicide, the official informed. 

The police stated Reshma Trenchil lost her husband to COVID-19 in May this year and was suffering from depression since then. Her neighbours Ayub Khan, Shehnaz Khan and Shaadab Khan constantly complained that her son was disturbing them with noise he was making. 

Tragically, Reshma's husband went to Varanasi to tend to his parents who had COVID. Both of them eventually died. Reshma's husband then tested positive as well, and was hospitalised. He died as well.

On May 30, she had posted a note on Facebook as a tribute to her husband.
