BENGALURU: Upset over the alleged harassment by his manager, a 28-year-old assistant at a private hospital hanged himself at his house in Yeshwantpur on Friday. The deceased is Sandesh (27), a native of Dakshina Kannada district who was working at Subbaiah Hospital in Mathikere.
Police said that Sandesh was found hanging in his house by his family members. In his suicide note, Sandesh alleged that Chakravarthy, the manager of the hospital, had falsely accused him of stealing `25,000 in demonetised currency notes from his cabin to exchange for new notes. Sandesh was being harassed by other senior staff over trivial issues, the note said.
Sandesh’s brother Dinesh told police that the hospital staff had checked CCTV footage and had found no evidence of theft. However, they had harassed Sandesh and forced him to say he was involved in it. Upset over this, Sandesh took this extreme step, he added.
A case of abetment to suicide has been filed and further investigations are on. The hospital staff were not available for comment.
