Mumbai: MD Gynecology commits Suicide over alleged Harassment, 3 Seniors booked for Abetment

The doctor was allegedly under depression as three of her senior colleagues allegedly used to harass her with castiest remarks.

Mumbai: In a tragic incident, a doctor pursuing second-year in MD Gynecology has allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself in her hostel room. According to media reports, the doctor took this drastic step over allegedly being harassed by three of her seniors, who allegedly used to trouble her during working hours, besides, commenting casteist slurs at her.

Following the complaint registered by the mother of the medico, the three accused doctors have been booked under relevant sections of IPC.

The deceased doctor has been identified as a 26-year-old PG medico pursuing MD Gynecology from a well known government-run Hospital in Mumbai.

On the day of the incident, the doctor had finished her duties in the morning and left for her hostel.  Late in the evening, the authorities tried to reach her, but could not get through. Afterwards, her roommates and seniors went to check on her. They found the door of her room locked. When no response came from inside after several knocks, they informed the security. It was then she was found hanging, as per media reports.

A doctor from the hospital told the Hindu, “We tried to resuscitate her by administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) but she was already in the state of rigor mortis.”

The fellow doctors contacted the hospital authorities who then informed the police.  After primary investigation, police had registered an accidental death report (ADR) case.

The doctor was allegedly under depression as three of her senior colleagues allegedly used to harass her with castiest remarks.

The brother of the doctor informed the HT that he received a call from her where she was complaining about three senior doctors at the hospital who were harassing her from a long time.

“She alleged that the doctors would not allow her to meet her husband or have food during working hours as she belonged to a lower caste. They also threatened her that she would not be able to complete her MD,” he added.

The mother of the deceased alleged that she was being harassed by three of her senior colleagues. Based on the complaint Agripada police registered a case against the trio under section 306 (abetment for suicide) of the Indian penal code (IPC), sections of the SC/ST Atrocities Act, Anti-Ragging Act and Information Technology Act, 2000.

  1. All children pursuing studies must be trained to fight with the situation and not to succumb under pressure , how anybody in our noble profession can harass anyone to such an extent, it should be investigated deeply and culprits should not be spared

  2. People must be made to understand Suicide is Not a Solution
    Any Circumstance where a Person is Actually Victimized, He or She Should File a Police Complaint with the help of Legal Counsel. Husband and Brother of the Lady should have accompanied her to the Dean of the College followed by lodging a complaint with the police station immediately after they were informed by her. Punishment would have been received by them instead of her.

    Alleged harassment story post suiside or attempted suiside has to be taken with a pinch of salt. Why a well educated adult could not or did not lodge a formal complaint?

  5. These three seniors …we should call them wild animals..as they dont come under human category should be removed immediately…permanently..still people are discriminating. Very sad to know…these three are not literate…they are illiterate…let us know who are those three..

  6. Who are those bloody Seniors ..How did they get so much power …Needs to be investigated and thrown out from the fraternity of the Noble profession …Out right Goondas in the Guise of Doctors !!!
