'Stress' compelled officer for suicide.

Captain M. Jayantha Kumar, (PS Gr. B  officer of 2009 batch) who was on deputation from Karnataka circle to Army in 1CBPO committed suicide at his residence in the afternoon of 22/2/2019. He was 47 years old and residing at Vasant Vihar Delhi. His family is at Bangaluru. He is having two school going kids. It was told that suicide note was found near his body. Delhi police is investigating the matter under section 174 of CrPC. Prima facie it appears that he was stressed. In one page suicide note, he wrote "I am honest and innocence, but I will not allow them to misuse me anymore". I love my family. happy birthday, my son".

Captain M. Jayantha Kumar was very talented, knowledgeable, brilliant, loyal and dynamic officer. He worked as Circle Secretary for IP/ASP Association for Karnataka Circle. He passed PS Gr. B examination in the vacancy year 2009 and eagerly waiting for his regular JTS Gr. A promotion. He was the first person in the cadre who raised the issue regarding discrimination between Inspector Posts and Inspectors working in CBDT/CBEC in CWC Meeting held at Mulki (Karnataka) in the year 2005 and thereafter he alone filed OA No. 211/2007 in Hon'ble CAT Bangalore Bench. Hon'ble CAT, Bengalore Bench has disposed of this OA on 27th July 2007 with common judgement along with another OA 424/06 that  "Govt. had constituted the VI Pay Commission to set right the anomalies and to recommend Pay revision in case of Central Govt. employees, and said commission had not submitted its report at that time, and directed respondents and applicants to take up the issue immediately before the VI Pay commission for consideration with the copy of its order". His action has shown us the path to get GP Rs. 4600/- to IP cadre. As every knows that thereafter at Association level we fought and achieved the goal to get GP of Rs. 4600/- to IP cadre w.e.f. 1/1/2006. The real hero is Mr. Jayanatha Kumar. He was closely associated with IP ASP Association and always took active part at each level. He has told to his few friends that after getting regular JTS Gr. A promotion he will go back to his parent circle. 

Our heartfelt condolences to the family of the departed soul. May the soul achieve moksha. God may give sufficient strength to the family of the departed soul to bear the loss.
