Her husband Dinesh Sharma and son Ankit Sharma kept crying inconsolably. A distraught Ankit fainted at the funeral but he regained consciousness later.

In her suicide note, Anuradha Sharma, a retired accountant in the finance ministry, blamed former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda and his employee Aruna Chaddha - who have been booked for and are in jail for abetment of suicide of her daughter - of driving her to suicide with their harassment.

Sharma, in her 50s, was found hanging in her bedroom at her Ashok Vihar residence around 5.50 pm Friday.
