GoAir staffers booked for 19-year-old ground crew's suicide

Nagpur: Two GoAir staffers, Akshay Patil and Nilay Janbandhu, have been booked for abetting suicide of 19-year-old ground crew Manthan Chavan. The teen committed suicide at his place at Chandramani Nagar in south Nagpur on May 30.
Patil worked as a manager in the Mumbai-based private airlines. His co-accused Janbandhu was senior ramp officer. They were held responsible for Chavan's drastic decision.
Chavan, only son of his parents, was ailing with jaundice. He was on leave but wanted to get it extended due to frail physical conditions.
The seniors were allegedly harassing Chavan to resume despite him not recovering yet from illness. It's learnt the phone call details and communications with the GoAir's senior staffers were one of the crucial grounds for the police to register the offence under 306 of Indian penal code for abetting the suicide.
Before hanging himself, Chavan left a suicide note addressing his mother who is serving in the Nagpur city police. He wished his mother a happy birthday and apologized for committing suicide.
