A DTC bus conductor allegedly committed suicide at the Bhajanpura depot Tuesday, filming himself in the act and leaving behind other video clips on his phone and a four-page suicide note in which he said he was being blackmailed by a bus driver and two women, said police.
The conductor, identified as 39-year-old Kamal Singh, sent the suicide video to his family, friends and colleagues, said police.
“On Tuesday morning, he consumed a poisonous substance at the depot. Some passengers took him to GTB Hospital in an autorickshaw. He took the name of three people, including two women and a man, in the videos. He claimed the group had first demanded Rs 5 lakh from him and later Rs 10 lakh,” a police officer said, adding that Singh was declared dead on arrival at the hospital. Singh, who was posted at the Noida depot, left behind his mother, three brothers and a sister in Khichdipur village.
In the suicide note, Singh claimed that a person he identified as Monu introduced him to the two women who later made “indecent videos” and threatened to approach police.
