Ragging allegedly drives PG medico to commit suicide, investigation underway
Bhopal: Days after the death of Post Graduate (PG) Orthopedics medico attached to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Medical College, the family members of the deceased doctor alleged that the medico was fed up with repeated harassment, and became suicidal after being a victim of ragging by five other doctors of the institution.
The piece of information was shared by the deceased's family in their complaint to the police and the investigating authorities. The anti-ragging committee is now looking into the matter and has already started an investigation.
The case related to a junior doctor identified as Bhagwat Devangan (29) who was pursuing a postgraduate course in orthopedics. On October 1, the medico allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan.
Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that the medico's family members called his friend as he was not responding to their calls on his phone. The doctor's friend found the door of his hostel room bolted from inside, so he called the police. The door was broken and the doctor was found hanging from the ceiling fan by a rope. No suicide note was found in the room.
However, the college management has not given any confirmation regarding the information alleged by the deceased's family, neither did they take any step against the five doctors yet, claims a recent media report in News Track.
