An engineering graduate, Ansh Gautam, attempted suicide, leaving a video testimony and a note detailing alleged mental harassment and threats from his former college mate turned colleague, Sneha Singh, as well as Ranvir Singh, Deepak Mishra, and Aditya Gupta. The incident has sparked outrage and calls for an investigation into the matter.

In his note, Gautam clearly states "Guilty for making me mentally suffer: Ms. Sneha Singh, Mr. Ranvir Singh, Deepak Mishra, Aditya Gupta." He accuses this group of individuals of contributing to his mental anguish through their actions.

Ansh Gautam's suicide

According to the 10-minute video left by Gautam, a recent graduate from the National Institute of Technology in Allahabad, Singh had been filing frivolous complaints and threatening to implicate him in a case under the Prevention of Sexual Harassment (POSH) Act. Gautam claims that Singh's actions led him to attempt suicide, creating chaos, misinterpreting situations, and making unfounded accusations.

Gautam wrote a note detailing the events leading to his tragic decision. He alleges Singh intentionally caused disruptions at CDOT and tried to delete files from his computer. When Gautam reported her to their team lead, Singh allegedly threatened him with false accusations.

The situation escalated when Singh accused Gautam of stealing her bag, a claim he denies. Gautam alleges that Singh's father impersonated a police officer and threatened to file a case against him, jeopardizing his chances of becoming an IAS officer.

Gautam tried to alert the legal and security authorities at CDOT, but claims his pleas were ignored and Singh's version of events was believed. Gautam alleges constant humiliation and unfair treatment, such as being moved to different seating without justification.

Gautam makes several demands

Gautam demands the immediate resignation of top CDOT authorities for failing to address the issue transparently in his note. He also urges the public to spread awareness about his case and implement measures such as whistleblowing, passive resistance, and social boycott of the accused individuals.

The incident has sparked outrage on social media, with many calling for a fair investigation. Concerns about the safety and well-being of employees, potential false accusations, and mishandling of such cases have been raised.

While Gautam is receiving medical treatment, the incident highlights the urgent need for robust mechanisms to address workplace harassment and ensure a fair hearing for all parties.

CDOT authorities have not issued an official statement yet.
