She found him not present inside the room, rather his body was found in the adjacent lane near the bacony,” a senior police officer told Millenium Post. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but was declared dead on arrival

Initially, the family suspected foul play in the matter, however, preliminary investigations and forensic examination of his room revealed that a knife with blood stains which along with a dupatta wrapped around his neck, which led them to conclude it was a suicide.

    Very suspicious of foul play unless proved otherwise in a fellow cardiologist from GBP where I did my MD
    It does not appear to be a suicide but made to look like one
    Good rest his soul

    Surprising that a cardiologist after having worked in GB Pant Hospital was unemployed for the last 10 yrs. and ended life as suicide. Where was his wife all night to look for him only in the morning to find his dead body. Was there no sound when he injured himself with knife? As claimed that he was a brilliant cardiologist. These are contradictory statements. Cardiologists as physicians are in great demand. Something wrong somewhere.

    Please do not tax your mind too much. Thinking of “something wrong somewhere”. It is an unfortunate incident. There is a difference between unemployed & underemployed.People who knew him would vouch for his intelligence. May his soul rest in peace & may his family have the strength to bear the loss

  5. Level of unemployment in india…

    Dr Bajaj was a brilliant Cardiologist with interst in research. He was upright & called a spade a spade. I came to know him in GB Pant hospital New Delhi where he joined as scientific pool officer. Yes it is possible for an upright cardiologist to remain underemployed even in Delhi. It does not surprise me at all. It is a scathing comment on prevailing health scenario in India

  7. Upright,honest and sincere doctors and teaching doctors in government colleges face lot of problems in their career
    That is how students miss the best teachers.
