Amritsar, August 17

A Covid patient admitted to Government Medical College allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the hospital building today. The deceased has been identified as Swaran Singh (46), a resident of Sandhpur village near Bhikhiwind in Tarn Taran district.

Though the authorities presume that he might have been upset due to his disease, the exact reason behind his suicide is not known.

Medical superintendent Dr Raman Sharma said the patient was an opium addict and an alcoholic. "The patient had complained of breathlessness and stomach ache," he said. The authorities said a psychiatrist had also provided counselling to the patient last evening. — TNS
