Siliguri flight attendant’s death in Gurgaon a mystery

Siliguri: Mystery shrouds the death of a flight attendant whose body was found hanging at a PG facility in Gurgaon on Wednesday.
The deceased has been identified as Sarmistha Sarkar (23), a resident of Bharat Nagar in ward 24 of Siliguri Municipal Corporation. She had recently shifted to a guesthouse in DLF Phase 3.

The PG facility’s owner was booked for abetment to suicide after Sarmistha’s father lodged a police complaint against Amrendra Singh, who he alleged was harassing his daughter.

A friend of Sarmistha’s (name withheld on request), who is also her neighbour, said: “She had told her mom a week back that she was not liking the place and had complained about the house owner. She wanted to return home. But her mother said she had just joined the job and should not think of leaving the place. She probably had some love affair problem, too.”
Sarmistha had started her career as a flight attendant with Air Asia in Bengaluru in 2016. “She did her schooling from St John’s School in Siliguri and her graduation from North Bengal St Xavier’s College. Then, she did an aviation course from a private institute in Siliguri,” the friend said. Sarmistha’s latest job was with SpiceJet in Delhi.
