LUCKNOW: Seven railway employees had been charged with abetment of suicide on Tuesday after the brother of the woman, who allegedly committed suicide by way of jumping off a four-storey development on Sunday, filed a complaint in opposition to them.

The girl, a railway employee, had claimed in her suicide note that she was once being sexually stressed by way of her seniors and co-workers. The note has been sent to Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for ascertaining its authenticity.

Circle officer (Alambagh) Sanjeev Sinha stated, “An FIR has been registered in opposition to seven railway officers at the fees of abetment of suicide at the complaint of victim’s brother.”

“The complainant has stated that his sister (victim) was once being stressed by way of her colleagues and had narrated her ordeal to him over the telephone,” the police officer added.

“The autopsy document says that the woman died because of head accidents. She had more than one fractures in her limbs and cranium. These had been caused because of fall from the fourth flooring of the development.
