Frustrated by a woman’s never-ending demand for sex, a 38-year-old man from Parbhani district of Maharashtra ended his life. The man was identified as Sachin Mitkari and worked at a hospital along with the woman.
On Monday, the police said that the man was found hanging from the ceiling at his residence situated on Vasmat-Parbhani road on Sunday. It was the neighbours who reportedly found him hanging and called on the police. His body was then sent for autopsy by the cops.
Mitkari penned down a suicide note which was recovered from the spot by the police. The note said that the woman had been harassing him and insisting him to have a sexual relationship with her.
Despite being told by Mitkari the fact that he was married, the woman continued to chase him so that she could indulge in a sexual relationship with him.
She allegedly also used to threaten and blackmail him that she would file a criminal case against him, said a police official quoting the suicide note. A case of abetment to suicide was registered against him by the police, as per what the official told news reporting agency PTI. Further investigation into the matter is reportedly underway.
This incident clearly tells us the impact sexual harassment can have on one’s life as this news has come in amid the #MeToo movement currently going on in India wherein different women are coming up with their ordeals and accounts of harassment, especially at their places of work.
This man should have gone on to publicise the said woman’s deeds, gaining inspiration from the many Me Too survivors. This could have saved his life and it is a clear indication that men should also join the campaign by voicing out their stories of harassment on social media.
