Wipro staff driven to suicide by financial woes: Police
Bangalore: A Wipro employee, whose body was
found on the railway tracks three months ago amid allegations
of his involvement in embezzlement of USD 4 million of the
firm, had committed suicide, police said on Tuesday.
The body of 26-year-old Anup Kumar Agarwal was recovered
from railway tracks between Byappanahalli and Krishnarajapuram
stations on December 23, a few days after the company
discovered the fraud and his alleged role in it.
Agarwal, a resident of Orissa and a chartered accountant
by profession, was working as an assistant manager at Wipro
"We received a call from the station master that a body
had been found on the tracks between K R Puram and
Byappanahalli at 7.45 am," D C Rajappa, Railway SP, Bangalore,
An inquest was done and the body identified as that of
Anup, son of Sajjan, was handed over to the family, he said.
The police were not aware of details of the embezzlement
case at that point of time, he said.
"We had registered a case of unnatural death," he said.
Anup`s wife had given a statement in writing that her
husband was going through some financial problems and was
worried and hence had resorted to the extreme step.
The deceased had left behind no suicide note, he said.
The post-mortem report said he had died of shock and
haemorrhage and had suffered multiple fractures.
