          we should find the reasons for suicide. pl punish the individual responsible for this incidence. Also the work culture of that IAF station needs to be checked. His bosses might be having an impractical approach.

            You should have refrained from reporting sensitive details as to which frontline fighter aircraft is housed in Sirsa airbase.. Such details are irrelevant for this story..
