The ongoing crisis at debt-ridden Kingfisher Airlines claimed a life on Thursday, with the wife of an employee committing suicide and putting non-payment of salary to her husband as the reason in the suicide note.
Sushmita Chakravarty, 45, hung herself from a ceiling fan at her Manglapuri home in south-west Delhi. She appears to have been depressed about the financial crisis in her family. Her suicide note, according to additional CP (southwest) AK Ojha, said husband Manas had not been paid for the past six months and she was "unable to cope with the situation".
"My husband and son are very caring and I love them. My husband works with Kingfisher, where they have not paid him for the last six months. We are in an acute financial crisis, so I am committing suicide," the note read.
Manas had joined Kingfisher as store manager after retiring from the air force. Police said the couple's son had taken admission in an engineering college in Assam this year, adding to their financial burden.
Manas called Sushmita from work around 1pm. When she didn't answer the phone, he requested neighbours to check on her. One of the neighbours knocked on the door and, on not getting a response, decided to enter the house by climbing the wall.
"He saw Sushmita and called the police. She was rushed to a nearby hospital, where doctors declared her dead," a police officer said.
Despite repeated attempts, Kingfisher officials did not answer calls. The airline has declared a partial lockout following the continuing strike by employees over unpaid salaries.
