A 45-year-old clerk at the local panchayat office at Nakud in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur committed suicide, allegedly over fears of the coronavirus.

Adesh Saini hanged himself at the Cane Development Council office at Sherkot late Wednesday night.

“We have recovered a suicide note in which he has stated in his handwriting that he is frightened by the coronavirus and hence has decided to take the extreme step.He has also written in the suicide note that all his life’s savings should be given to his wife,” said Sushil Saini, the in-charge of Nakud police station.

The officer said though the report at the police station has been lodged as that of suicide, the possibility that he was murdered cannot be ruled out.

“We are probing the case while the body has been handed over to his family members,” said the officer.
