Sans job, banker kills self at Panchkula hotel

Panchkula, October 12

A 34-year-old man from Daria in Chandigarh ended his life by consuming poisonous substance at Hotel Shiraaz in Sector 10 here.

The victim, identified as Lovekesh Kumar, was mentally disturbed as he was fired from his banking job on the charge of committing financial fraud. He had been missing since Saturday and his car was found parked in the parking lot of the hotel.

Thereafter, police officials found the door of his hotel room locked. Upon entering the room, he was found dead.

He reportedly checked into the hotel on Saturday and most likely consumed poison on the same day, police officials said.

A suicide note was recovered from the spot wherein the victim blamed senior bank officials for taking the extreme step. The victim, in the note, further stated that several bank officials were involved in the alleged fraud.

He was terminated from his job around eight to 10 months ago, much before the Covid-19 pandemic and the ensuing lockdown. A case under Section 306 (abetment of suicide), IPC, has been registered at the Sector 5 police station. — TNS
