Pall of gloom descends on death of IAS officer

Buxar district magistrate commits suicide by jumping in front of train in Ghaziabad

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday expressed grief over the death of Buxar district magistrate Mukesh Kumar Pandey, who allegedly committed suicide at Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh. Finally, in the evening, it came to the fore that Pandey had committed suicide on a railway track in Ghaziabad. However, sources say that he has sent a message to anyone from his phone which states that I am committing suicide by jumping from the mall's 10th floor in Janakpuri area of Western Delhi. Ghaziabad's DM Ministhy S who reached the site of the incident said that apart from a suicide note, a notebook was also found from him. My suicide note is kept in a Nike bag in room 742 of the Leela Palace Hotel in Delhi!

Police recovered a suicide note from the body of Pandey.

The police identified him as district magistrate of Bihar's Buxar from the identity-cards recovered from his possession. Further legal action would follow. The suicide note says, I am the 2012 batch IAS Mukesh Pandey in Bihar cadre. The police was informed about Mukesh Pandey's death by his friends whom he had reportedly, messaged before taking such a grave step. My wife loves me a lot.

Pandey was a resident of Parag Das Path of Bamunimaidam in the city. I have no pressure to commit suicide. A purse and suicide note has been received from his pocket, in which Mukesh wrote his own self-interest.

"When he could not be found, the CCTV footage was checked, in which the DM could be seen exiting the mall and heading towards a Metro station". When the GRP told the Ghaziabad police that the news of DM's dead body was found from the track, they got stirred.

Before serving in Bihar's Buxar, Pandey had worked in Begusarai's Ballia sub-division as an SDM (sub-divisional magistrate) and in Bihar's Katihar as a DDC.

Pandey had secured the all-India 14th position in the 2012 Union Public Service Examination (UPSC), considered among the toughest competitive exams in India to select the country's top officials. Delhi Police in their initial investigation have learnt that the IAS officer especially visited Delhi to commit suicide.
