Executive commits suicide, was facing allegations of sexual harassment at workplace

In a shocker, a 35-year-old senior executive of a global IT company allegedly committed suicide at his Noida home.

It is said that he had been temporarily suspended following complaints of sexual harassment at workplace.

Identified as Swaroop Raj, an assistant vice-president in Genpact, he was found hanging from the ceiling fan by his wife at their Sector 137 home in Noida.

Police said that Swaroop Raj was barred by the company from taking any official work pending inquiry into the allegations made against him by two employees recently.

Police reached the spot and sent his body for postmortem after being informed about the incident.

Confirming the temporary suspension, Genpact condoled the death but maintained that it would prefer to protect the privacy of Swaroop Raj and not divulge the details of the complaint.

No complaint has been made by the family of the executive but taking cognisance of the matter, the police is probing the matter on their own.
