In shocking news, daughter of a retired inspector general (IG) of Bihar police took an extreme step by allegedly committing suicide on Sunday by jumping down the 14th floor of an apartment in Patna a day before her wedding with an IAS officer posted in the same state.
The body of Dr Snigdha Sudhanshu was discovered in a pool of blood on the campus of Udaygiri Apartments under Kotwali police station minutes after she allegedly jumped down the 14th floor in the wee hours of the morning. The deceased teenager identified as the daughter of retired police IG- Sudhanshu Kumar, who stays in Patna’s Patel Nagar, police confirms.
It has been learnt that Dr Snigdha’s wedding with IAS officer Mahendra Kumar, currently posted as the district magistrate (DM) of Kishanganj in Bihar was scheduled to be held in Patna on Monday. Her engagement ceremony took place in the city on Saturday. Several IAS and IPS officers were among the guests turned up for the wedding.
“Prima facie it appears to be a case of suicide. A forensic sciences team has collected samples and police are looking at every possible angle. No suicide note was recovered from the spot, but her phone has been found,” said Patna SSP Manu Maharaaj.
According to the newindianexpress, Dr Snigdha, who had obtained her MBBS degree from Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (IGIMS) in Patna was pursuing her MD course in Kolkata, had allegedly come with a stool in her car to commit suicide.
Snigdha apparently climbed on the roof with the stool and then jumped down. Her car driver by the name of Krishna Yadav said she had visited Udaygiri Apartments a few days ago and had also made unexpected visits to tall buildings in the city in the past couple of days.
A security guard at Udaygiri Apartments which is the tallest residential building in Patna, said she did not bat an eye on signing the register and then rushed into the building, explaining that she had to meet a resident of the 14th floor.
