This text is written on the Facebook cover photo of Dr Krishnaprasath Ramasamy, a 24-year-old junior resident at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER). Sadly, he could not “suffer” anymore and in less than two months of joining the hospital, he committed suicide.

According to other resident doctors, he was “depressed” and wanted to return to his home in Tamil Nadu. One of the top rankers, Dr Ramasamy was from a humble background. He is survived by his parents and a younger sister. His father, Ramasamy, is a priest at the Rameswaram temple.

Inspector Lakhbir Singh of the Sector 11 police station said that the reason for taking the extreme step is still not known.

A case has been registered over the incident and investigations are going on, he added.
