Midnapore: The wife of a doctor, who committed suicide by consuming an overdose of insulin injection, complained to the police that an influential CPI-M leader and six doctors of a local medical college provoked him to take his own life.
ASP (Hdq) Kalyan Mukherjee said that Shalini Saha, Dr Bikram Saha`s wife, last night in an FIR lodged with the Kotowali police station here alleged that her husband was tormented by CPI-M state committee member Dipak Sarkar and six doctors of the Midnapore Medical College and Hospital for working for a local hospital run by a charitable organisation.
Dr Saha took an injection of overdose of insulin on June nine and died in a private hospital in Kolkata on June 13, the FIR alleged.
Dr Saha`s wife complained that Dipak Sarkar had been insisting her husband to work in the Midnapore Paramedical Centre run by a charitable organisation which is headed by Sarkar, the police said on Sunday.
Six other doctors of Midnapore Medical College and Hospital also harassed him and insisted him to join the paramedic centre, the police said.
An assistant professor of Midnapore Medical College and Hospital, Saha was depressed and was declared a psychiatric patient by a board of doctors in the hospital, hospital officials said.
He did not attend the hospital for the past three years for his illness, they said.
Sarkar, however, told reporters that he did not know any doctor named Dr Bikram Saha.
