Mumbai: In a deeply disturbing incident, a 43-year-old woman tried to kill herself by jumping from the newly inaugurated Atal Setu. This marks the first suicide attempt on the MTHL bridge. The Navi Mumbai police were informed of the incident by a taxi driver. However, the woman's identity was only confirmed after the Bhoiwada police contacted the Nhava Sheva police late on Monday evening.

Subhash Borate, senior police inspector of Bhoiwada police station, said that the woman had been battling depression for the past eight years. Her father had lodged a missing complaint in the afternoon when she failed to return home. It was then discovered that she had left a note mentioning her intention to end her life at Atal Setu. In the note, she also asked her family not to harass the taxi driver.
