Bhubaneswar: Unable to cope with the ongoing pandemic crisis and the nationwide lockdown, an Odia engineer stranded in Kolkata, attempted suicide.
According to media reports, senior engineer Saroj Mangaraj, a resident of Cuttack’s Athagarh, was in Kolkata when the lockdown was announced.
On learning about Saroj’s disturbed mental health, his helpless family members approached Badamba MLA Debi Prasad Mishra for help. The MLA informed media about it.
Soon, the Bansdroni Police of Kolkata was informed about the matter.
The Bansdroni IIC along with expert Anjan Behera took Saroj to a hospital run by Hope Foundation, where he is undergoing treatment now.
