Two of the suicides were in the Indian community. One of them was 45-year-old housemaid, identified as Malla Lalitama, a native of Pallamkurru in Vishakapatanam district of the coastal Andhra Pradesh.
Some social workers are trying to locate her sponsor for the repatriation of her body. It is not known if she ended life at her workplace or outside, said a social worker, according to whom the death, which occurred on December 24, was by hanging.
