A young housemaid's body was found hanging from a ceiling fan in Civil Lines on Wednesday night.
The incident took place in Syed Ali Shah Jamote's house. S, 20, had been working at the Jamote residence for the past two years.

"After the post-mortem report [comes], we can ascertain whether it was suicide or a murder," he added. Her body was handed over to her relatives, after the post-mortem.
