Mangaluru: Krishnaswamy, a 47-year-old panchayat development officer (PDO) attached to the Munnur gram panchayat is committed suicide here on Wednesday, June 13.
The official was found hanging in the toilet of the panchayat office on Wednesday, along with a suicide note.
The note is said to have been left behind by the officer, in which he claimed responsibility for his own death and requests the government to give his wife a job so that she can continue to take care of their only daughter. The note does not, however, mention any reason for his suicide.
A case has been registered by the Ullal police.
