Bangalore, Oct 11 (UNI) A tension-ridden life and worry over deeply entrenched corruption in government offices drove a female doctor to commit suicide by administering an anesthetic.
Fifty-year-old Radhika, working as a Superintendent at the Indiranagar ESI hospital here, committed suicide in her room as she was finding it difficult to cope with stress at her workplace.
In the suicide note, Dr Radhika stated that she was disturbed by the recent developments which led to a delay in her getting the deserved promotion as the Director of the hospital where she had worked for 18 years.
The staff of the hospital said she had been under stress for the past several days. Some high-up had reportedly denied promotion to her as she had refused to bribe them, they said, adding that Dr Radhika was against such malpractices.
She leaves behind her husband, an Executive Engineer in the Irrigation department, a daughter, who is a software engineer, and a son studying MBA in a city college.
