A 53-year-old doctor working in the pathology lab at Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital in Dombivli committed suicide in his home on Monday.

Dr Surendra Wankhade, who was on leave for the last 15 days, was found hanging from the ceiling fan in his second-floor flat at Atre Vachanalaya. “We got a call from Dr Bharat Bhule, his colleague,” said Inspector Ramnath Shinde of the Dombivli police station. “We found a note which said nobody should be held responsible for his act.”

Dr Wankhade lived alone in Dombivli. His wife, a nurse, works in Akola and his two daughters live in Vidarbha.

On August 7, he had tried to commit suicide by consuming sleeping pills. A friend had rushed him to hospital.
