A 35-year-old woman, allegedly working as a computer operator, allegedly committed suicide by consuming poisonous substances at the SDM office at Uchana Nagar in Jind district of Haryana. Police said on Friday that the woman had left a suicide note and an audio clip in which she accused some of the employees posted at the SDM office that they had to take this step.
A senior police officer of Uchana police station said that a case under Section 306 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered against 12 people on the basis of a complaint from the woman’s family and a suicide note left by the deceased. Uchana police station in-charge Ravindra Dhankhar said that SDM has also been named in the complaint.
Left a four-page suicide note and a voice recording
He said the woman left a four-page suicide note and a voice recording before committing suicide. Dhankhar said that he has demanded action in the case from the Superintendent of Police of Jind.
He said that the deceased woman was working in the SDM office on contractual basis. She said that her family claimed that she was the only woman working in the SDM office at Uchana in Jind district of Haryana.
Dhankhar said that in the suicide note, the woman claimed that some employees allegedly pressured her to do something wrong in official matters, but she refused. He said that the woman also wrote that she had complained to the SDM about the alleged wrongdoing of some employees, but no action was taken.
Daughter gave information to police
Dhankhar said that the police control room got a call from the daughter of the woman in the early hours of Friday, who said that her mother had consumed any poisonous substance. He said that the woman had died when we reached there. At the time of the incident, her 10-year-old son and 15-year-old daughter were at home, while her husband, who works as a security guard, was on duty.
He said that by chance we have recovered a suicide note and a voice recording from a mobile phone placed nearby. The woman has convicted six employees of the SDM office and some typists sitting outside the SDM office in the entire case. Dhankhar said further investigation was going on.
