Bengaluru: Senior IFS officer Avtar Singh ends life

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP) 

Bengaluru, Sep 9: Senior Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer, Avtar Singh, who was working as additional principal chief conservator of forests here, committed suicide by hanging himself at his residence on Sunday September 8. 

Singh (52), whose office was located at Aranya Bhavan in Malleshwaram, is believed to have been under tremendous work pressure.



Deputy commissioner of police, Bheemashanar Guled, said that Singh ended his life in a fourth floor apartment at Prestige Mount Kalor Apartment at Yalahanka New Town on Doddaballapur Road in the city. He reportedly had gone on leave and had rejoined for duties recently. On Sunday, he finished his walking routine, returned home, and hanged himself at his room in his residence. It is guessed that work pressure and failing health could be the main reasons for this unexpected act. 

The deceased officer was suffering from diabetes and was depressed, it is said. He had been transferred to his office at Aranya Bhavan a month back. A 1990 batch IFS officer, Avtar Singh, was from Haryana. He has left behind wife and two children.

    People are missing MANMOHAN Singh governance. Depressions obviously playing key role to get into extreme steps Skilled and unskilled are losing jobs, Industries are getting closed and people who go against current regime either are black mailed if not not grilled with IT, CBI and ED raids.

    RIP. Hard to understand whats going on around?

    Another thing. The title. IFS is misleading. It can also mean Indian Foreign Service which is given to highest ranks in IAS exams.
