Three employees of Seethalakshmi Government Maternity Hospital at RS Puram were held on charges of abetting the suicide of a sanitary worker of the same hospital. A case was registered by the Kuniyamuthur police against the three under Section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code.
P Rangasamy, 38, a resident of BK Pudur near Kuniyamuthur, had consumed pesticide to kill himself on Wednesday. Before doing so, he had recorded a video in which he alleged that three persons working in the hospital – Solomon, Revathi and staff nurse Latha – had gotten him fired over fabricated charges.
This video evidence was also turned into the cops by Rangasamy’s daughter R Sangeetha, who lodged the police complaint.
