Bathinda, May 10

A woman employee of Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Technical University (MRSPTU) on Sunday reportedly committed suicide by jumping from the third floor inside the campus.

Meanwhile, the family members of the deceased have demanded a high-level probe, alleging murder.

The deceased has been identified as Jyoti (26) of Amarpura Basti in the city, who was working as a clerk-cum-data operator on a regular post in the accounts department of the technical university.

She came to the university at 9 am on Sunday for some work and around 10 am, some of her colleagues contacted her family members and informed them about her alleged suicide.

Soon after the incident, the Canal Colony police visited the spot and took the body to the Civil Hospital for autopsy. The exact cause of death will only be ascertained after the autopsy report arrives, but the police are taking action on the statement of the deceased's family.

Meanwhile, Jyoti's uncle Wazir Chand raised questions on the university management for calling its employees for work on Saturday and Sunday even during the curfew owing to Covid pandemic. He said earlier too, many times Jyoti had told them that one of her colleagues had harassed her.

He alleged that a minor injury on her hand and torn clothes were indicating murder. He demanded that the CCTV camera footage installed near the incident spot should be included in the probe.

Meanwhile, Canal Colony police station SHO Sunil Kumar said they were looking into all angles and action would be taken in this case.
