LUCKNOW: 22-year-old Sarita was an aspiring woman constable who was upset with the ‘reservation in jobs’. The young girl committed suicide in Malha village of Kakori on the outskirts of Lucknow after she failed to get a job as a constable in Uttar Pradesh Police Department.
Besides apologizing to her parents for not being able to crack the job, Sarita in her 10-page suicide note drew the attention of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Samajwadi Party (SP) Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and many other leaders blaming the ‘reservation’ for her disappointment, the family alleged.
Sarita, an NCC cadet and BA student was the second daughter of farmer Girish who had recently appeared in an exam for constable’s recruitment.
The body of the girl was found by her father hanging from a tree following which the police was informed.
The police on the other hand are yet to believe the theory of ‘suicide over reservation’ and are probing the matter.
“We will examine the handwriting on the suicide note. We did not get the suicide note from the spot and it was it provided to us later on,” said CO Mohanlalganj Rakesh Nayak.
