Thane: A police officer from Thane in Maharashtra Tuesday risked his own life to foil the suicide bid of a 22-year-old woman, a civic official said.

Incidentally, it was the second suicide attempt of the woman, Preeti Kini, a resident of Ambivli in Kalyan, in the last one week. Even as Kini was recovering from the injuries she had inflicted on herself on July 17 she again tried to take her life this morning.

The woman climbed to the fifth floor of the police quarters here around 9 am and was sitting on the ledge of the building to take a plunge, said Santosh Kadam, who heads Regional Disaster Management Cell (RDMC) of the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC).

The woman was spotted by a resident of the building who raised an alarm, he said. "Assistant Police Inspector (API) Vishwas Jadhav of Shantinagar police station, who is a resident of the fifth floor, rushed out of his flat and pulled the woman to safety," said Kadam.

On July 17, Kini had tried to kill herself by slashing her abdomen in front of the District Rural Police headquarters, but was saved by police personnel.

The woman had told police that she wanted to take her own life as her in-laws were not allowing her to meet her husband. She was rushed to JJ Hospital in Mumbai this afternoon.

Police are investigating how Kini got discharged from a hospital and managed to enter the police quarters.
