BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: Amid the coronavirus crisis, a lady doctor at the pediatric ward of the state-run RG Kar Hospital, Kolkata, allegedly committed suicide at around 11.30 am on Friday. She apparently jumped off the 12th floor of the hospital building.
Her colleagues said that 25-year-old Paulami Saha had been suffering from depression for quite a while. One of them who did not wish to be named said she was having domestic problems for the last few months. Dr Saha had been speaking about this to some of her colleagues. She was a junior doctor who had joined the hospital a year back.
The incident came to light after the guards in front of the casualty ward saw the doctor falling off the 12th floor of the building. She first fell on the shed after which her body rolled down on the road in front of the ward.
A senior police officer said that they had recovered her body and immediately shifted her to the emergency wing where doctors declared her dead. The cops have started an investigation into the case.
