A 35 years old man who was at a senior post at Genpact commits suicide. The assistant vice-president at Genpact Swaroop Raj committed suicide at his Noida residence on Thursday. He was facing allegations of sexual harassment at his workplace.
The police told the media that, Swaroop Raj was found hanging by his wife of two years and she informed them about the incident. They said Swaroop was temporarily suspended from the company, pending the investigation into the allegations levelled against him by two employees. Police stated, “The company had asked him to submit his identity card and laptop till the inquiry against him was complete.”
Swaroop joined Genpact in 2007 as a process developer and became a senior manager in 2015. He was gradually promoted to the post of assistant vice-president. He was from Ernakulam, Kerala and stayed at Noida’s Paramount Society with his wife Kriti.
Kriti found Swaroop’s body after she returned home Monday night and informed the police after which his body was taken for postmortem.
Police also found a suicide note along with his dead body which Swaroop had reportedly written for his wife. The letter reads:
“I want to let you know how much I love you. I have an allegation by two of the employees on sexual harassment and trust me I didn’t do anything. I know the world will understand it but you and our families should trust me. The allegations are baseless. But the entire Genpact will know about it. Hence, I don’t have the courage to face everyone. I want you to be strong and live your life with whole respect as your husband has not done anything. I am going as everyone will look at me with that eye even if I come clean.”
Police said Swaroop’s body was sent for postmortem and the family had not yet blamed anyone for the suicide.
