In January, a 26-year-old doctor of AIIMS had committed suicide at a hotel in Kochi in Kerala. Dr Mamta Rai worked in the dermatology department and belonged to Jamshedpur in Jharkhand. She had left a suicide note mentioning that she was battling depression and was unable to cope with it, the police said. She reportedly said in her suicide note that she is a patient of depression. She is fed up of fighting it. She is quitting. No one is responsible for this. “Sorry Papa,” she penned in the note.
Rai had come to Kochi for attending a conference on dermatology on January 18, 2018. She was found hanging from the ceiling fan in the hotel room. She was brought down from the ceiling fan by the hotel staff and taken to a nearby hospital where she was declared dead on arrival.
