Mohina Rakhmonova

An Uzbekistani woman committed suicide by jumping off a high-rise building in Bangkok. Depressed and drunk, she felt that she could no longer cope with her life.

Police officers from Bang Pho Police Station were notified of the incident early on Saturday morning and dispatched to SV City Tower on Rama III Rd in Bangkok’s Yan Nawa district: a 25th-storey compound containing apartments, shops and offices. A doctor and rescue volunteers accompanied Pol Capt Sarayut Santad who is leading the investigation.

Staff and police arrived on the 3rd floor of the building to dsicover the body of Mohina Rakhmonova, a 23-year-old woman. She had leapt to her death 30 minutes prior to their arrival. She was found on the floor face down in a pool of blood.

“Her arms and legs were fractured, and the back of her skull had cracked open,” said Pol Capt Sarayut describing her injuries as a result of the impact. According to police, she was wearing a black sleeveless top and black trousers.

“We found a pair of shoes and a handbag belonging to Ms Rakhmonova on the staircase on the 14th floor,” Pol Capt Sarayut said. “It is likely that this is where she jumped off.”

Police revealed that Ms Rakhmonova had been renting an apartment on the 11th floor of her building and was last seen at around 5am visiting a neighbour on the same floor. “This friend told us that Ms Rakhmonova was very intoxicated and suffering from depression.”

A review of security camera footage showed that she was alone when she walked to the 14th floor. “We are treating this case as a suicide since we have not find any sign of a fight or evidence to indicate a crime has been committed,” investigator Pol Capt Sarayut told Thai media.

“We are now waiting for the result of the autopsy. Before closing the case, we will also interview Ms Rakhmonova’s friend once more because she was the last person to see her alive.” The post-mortem examination will be conducted at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital.
