Ghaziabad: A constable deployed at a fast
track court here allegedly committed suicide on the premises,
apprehending his name could figure in the charge sheet in the
PF scam case, police said today.

Rajpal Yadav (38) allegedly consumed sulphas tablets
inside the court yesterday afternoon. He was rushed to a
hospital where he died last night.

Police said Yadav had reportedly expressed his fear to
some of his colleagues about his name figuring in the
multi-crore Provident Fund scam case.

Before taking the extreme step, police said Yadav had
also sent a four-page sealed suicide note to the district
Judge Vishnu Chandra Gupta through a court employee.

The suicide note was forwarded to the SSP who refused to
disclose its content. However, sources said Yadav had revealed
some facts related to the scam in his note.

The bar association too has demanded disclosure of the
contents of the suicide note.

Meanwhile, Yadav`s body was handed over to his family
after a postmortem.

The CBI had on July 3 filed the charge sheet in the
infamous Provident Fund scam of Ghaziabad courts against 78
people including three former judges of Allahabad High Court
and three district judges.
