Wife Of Kingfisher Employee Commits Suicide
New Delhi: The wife of an employee of debt-ridden Kingfisher Airlines committed suicide here Thursday by hanging herself, police said. She was depressed over the deteriorating financial condition of her family. “Sushmita Chakravarthy, 45, was found hanging from a ceiling fan at her west Delhi residence in Palam Thursday at 1.30 p.m.,” said a police official.
A suicide note left behind by her said that her husband has not received salary for the past four-five months, police said. Her husband Manas Chakravarthy, a retired airforce official, works as a technician in Kingfisher Airlines. Their son studies engineering in Assam.
The debt-ridden airline was virtually grounded Monday as it had to cancel all its 50 flights after a section of its employees went on a flash strike Sunday demanding payment of their dues, pending since March, by Oct 5.
Additional Commissioner of Police A.P. Ojha said Sushmita was depressed over the family’s financial problems for the past few months.
