Thirty-year-old doctor from Karnataka committed suicide for being denied leave for his sister’s wedding.

The victim was pursuing his MD course from PGIMS, Rohtak in Haryana. He allegedly committed suicide in the hostel of the hospital’s campus, police said on Friday.

Onkar, who came from Dharwad in Karnataka, allegedly hung himself from the ceiling of his hostel on Thursday night, Rohtak Police Station SHO Inspector Kailash Chander said.

Chander said Onkar was pursuing his MD course in paediatrics and took the extreme step allegedly due to harassment he faced from the department head.

“Although he did not leave any suicide note, Onkar’s colleagues and family members alleged that his head of department used to harass him. Allegations have also been levelled that she did not grant him leave to attend his sister’s wedding, which was due in a few days,” the SHO said.
