The 2012-batch Bihar cadre IAS officer Mukesh Kumar Pandey, who allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a train at Ghaziabad railway station on Thursday, had taken charge as Buxar District Magistrate over a week ago, on August 3. Transferred from Katihar where he was posted as deputy development commissioner (DDC), it was the 30-year-old’s first posting as DM. One of Pandey’s colleagues who worked with him in Katihar told
While police have begun investigation into the matter, an suicide note purportedly found on Pandey’s body stated that he “is disappointed with life and has no faith in humanity”. Police said Pandey, in the note, has not blamed anyone and also left three mobile numbers.
The Delhi Police said the IAS officer had first reportedly planned to jump to death from a mall at Janakpuri but could not do so apparently due of the presence of private security guards and also some policemen. He had later taken a train for Ghaziabad. According to police, he had left for Delhi saying he was wanted to meet his ailing maternal uncle. Pandey, who had not yet moved his luggage to his official house in Buxar, had handed over his charge to Buxar DDC.
