A doctor posted at the Community Health Centre (CHC) allegedly committed suicide here on Sunday by hanging himself.
Dr. Shivam Mishra, a native of Rewa, was reportedly under severe mental pressure due to a case registered against him a couple of weeks ago under the SC/ST Act by one of the nurses in the medical facility.
Police informed that no suicide note was found from the spot.
A person known to the deceased said on the condition of secrecy that the case registered against Mr Mishra was allegedly not a big deal and was filed out of reprisal as the doctor issued a notice to the said staff on grounds of negligence of duty.
“We are investigating all the angles. A case has been registered under the relevant section of the law,” he added.
