Jaipur: While the medical fraternity is still reeling with the death of an MD gynaecology in Mumbai, who allegedly committed suicide due to casteist harassment from seniors, yet another MD Gynaecology medico, this time from SMS Medical college, Jaipur has now committed suicide

A 24-year-old female doctor who had began pursuing her MD Gynaecology at SMS Medical College two months ago, allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling fan of her hostel room.

While no suicide note was recovered from the spot, the family members of the deceased filed a police complaint stating that their daughter was being continually harassed by her seniors and based on the same, the Jaipur Police have booked five postgraduate medical students.

Confirming the details about the same to the media, Resident doctor at the government-run Mahila Chikitsalya, Sanganeri Gate, was found hanging from the ceiling fan of her hostel room Wednesday, SHO, Sanganeri Gate, Raisar Singh said. No suicide note was found there, he added.

Speaking to the media persons, the father of the deceased, said, “In the last two months, she always told us that her seniors would harass her. They used to give her more work, and harass and misbehave with her if she was late for duty. Often, they wouldn’t even let her eat lunch.”

The deceased mother stated, “She had taken admission into the SMS college after completing her MBBS in Punjab. She knew how to handle work place pressure; the issue was harassment. The accused doctors publicly shamed her and told her in front of a packed hall to pack up her bags and leave the college.”

Superintendent of Mahila Chikitsalya Dr Asha Meena said that the medico had taken admission in the postgraduate degree programme in the gynaecology department in May this year.

“The students denied the allegations in the suicide case, but the police have registered an FIR and they are conducting the investigation into the matter,” college principal Dr. Sudhir Bhandari informed TOI, adding that the hostel warden was changed. The 5 doctors have also been suspended.

  1. I think there is a rigid seniority system operates.a little stressor can be detrimental to a n already stressed mind
    if u r not from a particular medicine back back ground it takes u at least 6 month to adjust to system
    the serious nature of job can make a person very nervous
    most seniors see their juniors as their future competitor so some of them deliberately try to lower their self esteem..yup bad and good senior exist
    there is not a strict system to curb workplace harrassement as do in corporates
    your immediate seniors are authorised to decide ur destiny and hod is beyond ur reach
    it can be an intense trauma to a unsuspecting conscience..sometimes u get mobbed in medical campus
    its very unfortunate that doctors are mobbed by not only general public but by their own fraternity in the name of rigid training ..its such a thankless situation…as we can see it in mumbai suicide case

  2. Those responsible culprits even if they are persuing PG , Should be rusticated ; if found guilty .

    No one has ben suspended in this case till now ,there was no fault of any of the mentioned accused doctors . just to blame someone misleaded family members gave these five residents name without evidence . One of the acuused 3rd year resident doctors just had a night duty with her in last 2.5 months ,she had no history of call and any messages with her .She has her personal issues and that leads to her suicide .plz dont blame those residents without any evidence

  4. It\’s unfortunate that the medico was asked to pack her bag and leave the campus infront of the gathering. This i never heard before. OK someone getting failed constantly in examination , he or she can be debarred with warning. What was the reason of throwing such lines to the medico , irrespective ! Did she commit any crime to face such strictures that too in front of a gathering ? The incident really smacks of some excess done to this unfortunate soul. It\’s also unfortunate that even after attending this age, the lady who killed herself could not ignore the state managed humiliation that has been inflicted upon. One should not be that chicken hearted . Along with academics one has to face and fight such sadistic elements. I know one may say, it\’s well said than done and shoe pinches to the person who wares it. But believe me there is no other alternative than to demolish , destroy and demean these immature and juvenils who derive pleasure of resorting to such crimes. Running away from the arena will only embolden these criminals. That\’s the only message to convey to others on the occasion . Not less or not more.

  5. This is all shit .if you cant handle work pressure in your residency then you r a misfit in this profession .we all hav faced this &there is nothing new in it .these 3 years of training make you a perfect &rock solid personality to deal all kinds of pressure in future .Nothing should be taken personally even if seniors are rowdy.its part of excess patint load pressure on them too.
