Just a day after suicide attempted by a woman doctor at Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH), kin of the deceased have levelled serious allegations against fellow doctors and seniors for harassing her. Though no case has been registered in this context, police are yet to probe the allegations.

It is pertinent to mention that on Monday late evening, a woman doctor, Supriya, 27, pursuing her MD at DMCH, committed suicide by hanging herself with a ceiling fan of a room at the girls' hostel. She was a second-year student at the department of paediatrics at the DMCH.

The deceased also left a suicide note before committing suicide but did not blame anyone. Balwinder Singh, father of the deceased, who is a district health officer (DHO) in Jalandhar, alleged doctors at DMCH were harassing his daughter. "They did not even sign her project work," he alleged.

The body of the deceased was handed over to the family after the post-mortem was conducted at the civil hospital. Police media coordinator inspector Kamadeep Singh said the victim did not blame anyone for the death. Sources say the deceased, in the suicide note, said she "don't want to live anymore".

Dr Harmesh Singh Bains, head of the department, paediatrics, DMCH, refused to comment and said police had been investigating the matter.
