Alleged Work Pressure: Doctor jumps to death from 8th floor of hospital building
Bengaluru: A doctor attached to MS Ramaiah Medical College and Hospital allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the 8th floor of the hospital building on Wednesday morning.
Police are suspecting that work pressure could be the reason, though, the cause for the extreme step is yet to be investigated. The Sadashivanagar police have registered an unnatural death case in this connection based on a complaint filed by the doctor's brother-in-law.
The deceased has been identified as a 45-year-old assistant professor of physiology with MS Ramaiah Medical College and Hospital and a resident of Banashankari.
As per cops, the doctor had logged in for work at 9.30 am on Wednesday, as usual, and reportedly talked with his colleagues normally.
"At around 11.45 pm, he fell from the Ramaiah Memorial Hospital building's terrace, which is on the 8th floor and the guards rushed to his rescue but he had passed away. He was last seen at around 10.30 am when he was discussing over the phone about getting his car repaired. It is suspected that he fell from the terrace as other places are covered with grills for safety. No one has seen him going to the terrace," the police was quoted as saying by The New Indian Express.
