No salary forces Kingfisher staffer's wife to end life

New Delhi, Oct 4, 2012, DHNS:

Kingfisher extends lockout till October 12

Apparently depressed due to financial crunch, a 45-year-old wife of a ground staff employee in Kingfisher Airlines allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself at her Palam residence in south-west Delhi on Thursday.

Pictorial representationThe victim, Sushmita Chakravarti, lived with her husband Manas in DDA flats in Manglapuri. Manas, a retired Indian Air Force official, presently works as a technician with Kingfisher Airlines at Indira Gandhi International Airport.

“Sushmita was found hanging by a rope tied to the ceiling fan at around 1.30 pm by her 18-year-old son,” a senior police official said.


The boy informed his father and police after which a police control room vehicle rushed Sushmita to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital. She was declared brought dead.

A suicide note has been recovered from the victim’s room in which she mentioned about financial stress due to non-payment of salary to her husband by the airlines.

“She did not blame any person for the extreme step. She feared that Kingfisher would  shut down and her husband would lose his job,” said Anil Kumar Ojha, ACP (south-west).
Her son is pursuing engineering in a private college in Assam and they had not paid his fees this year.


Airline gets escrow funds


Ailing Kingfisher Airlines on Thursday night extended its partial lockout by a week till October 12 as talks between the management and employees failed to break the deadlock over non-payment of salaries for the last seven months.The beleaguered airline, meanwhile, got some reprieve as bankers agreed to release funds from escrow accounts, which is likely to release up to Rs 60 crore for the carrier.
