In a sad incident, Indian Legendary singer Asha Bhosle lost her daughter Varsha Bhosle who committed suicide yesterday. Varsha who was a divorcee, had attempted suicide twice before yesterday when she unfortunately succeeded in ending her life. She shot herself at Asha’s residence in the ‘Prabhu Kunj’ building in Peddar Road, the same building where Lata Mangeshkar also resides. Both Asha and Lata were not present at their residence at that time. She apparently shot herself in head with Asha’s licensed revolver. Her body was taken to Mumbai’s JJ Hospital where she was declared dead. 55-years-old Varsha was a freelance journalist married to a sports writer Hemant Kenkre with whom she had ended her marriage.
She had apparently first attempted suicide earlier in 2008 but this time around her life couldn’t be saved. We offer our heartfelt condolences to victim’s family.
