The body of an employee of Indian Air Force (IAF), visiting his native village, was found on the rail track near Balasore railway station on Wednesday.

A suicide note was found from the pocket of Prashanta Kumar (30), a resident of Aladia village near Balasore, who was posted as radio fitter in the IAF wing at Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh, a government railway police (GRP) spokesman said.

The note suggested that "he was frustrated over his posting at Kanpur", the official said.

Kumar, whose body was spotted on the tracks in the early hours, had been seen roaming around the Balasore railway platform area by some locals.
