Srinagar, June 26: The officers at higher positions are also vulnerable. They lose their nerve at times and act accordingly. It is however kept a secret by their office and they are spared humiliation.
According to a report in Early Times, a top IAS officer attempted suicide earlier this week after a senior officer called on him. The domestic helper who worked at the officer’s place found the house unusually calm. On looking further she found the Babu (officer) lying semi-unconscious, with his wrists slit open and surrounded with blood.

The attempted suicide has sent shock waves across the bureaucratic circles. The police have filed a case and an investigation has begun. The senior IAS officer who called on the babu earlier that day may be questioned.
