As per law she is not entitled to any compensation from the employer
With less than 1 year in service she is not eligible for gratuity.
Since she was on leave and suicide, there is no claim under employee compensation act.
She will of course be entitled to compensation under Pf act.
If you want to help you are free to do it. But there is no legal claim for the same.

I think the law says that in case of death during employment gratuity is payable even if 5 years is not complete. During employment means while she is still working with the company. It does not mean she must be in the office / factory.
In any case gratuity is 15 days for every completed year if service. So since she worked for only 5 days gratuity is nil.
We both are saying the same thing thought our logic is different.
