Rohtak, September 24
A 38-year-old Assistant Professor at Nursing College of Pt BD Sharma PGIMS here committed suicide by consuming some poisonous substance in his car near Kanheli village here on Wednesday evening.
His wife, along with two daughters, also jumped into a water tank near Sun City when she came to know about the suicide.
The woman and her younger daughter died due to drowning while the elder daughter- Enna (10)- somehow managed to come out of the water and reached a house in Sector-2 here where they used to live before shifting to the PGIMS campus. She then narrated the incident to the house residents, who later informed the police who fished out the bodies from the water tank on Thursday morning. The deceased have been identified as Dr Pramod Saharan, her wife Meenakshi and daughter Prisha (4). Meenakshi too was a lecturer.
Pramod, along with a doctor, had gone to Gurugram in his car to take an exam in a medical college there on Wednesday morning. He dropped the doctor at her house in the PGIMS campus on coming back to Rohtak in the evening. Later, he drove the car towards Kanheli village where he consumed poison in his car and informed his friends about it. The friends rushed to the spot and took him to PGIMS where he was declared brought dead.
Bijender Singh, SHO, Shivaji Colony Police station, informed the exact reason behind the extreme step was yet to be ascertained while a suicide note had been recovered from Pramod’s car wherein he did not blame anyone for the suicide.
Sources said as soon as Meenakshi learnt about the suicide of her husband, she along with her two daughters, went to a water tank near Sun City on her scooty and jumped into the water on Thursday evening. Enna knew how to swim hence she came out from the water.
Shamsher Singh, SHO, Urban Estate Police Station, said they took Enna to the spot at night to rescue her mother and sister but the divers could not locate them as there were four water tanks.
“On Thursday morning, divers again launched the operation and fished out the bodies of the mother-daughter duo. Bodies of the three have been handed over to their kin after the postmortem examination,” said Singh.
