A 35-year-old assistant vice-president  Swaroop Raj, at Genpact, committed suicide on Tuesday after being suspended from his job over sexual harassment allegations by his colleagues, which he said in his suicide note were untrue.

The letter read, “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 me 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."

According to media reports, the body of the man was discovered by his wife around 11:30 pm and a purported suicide note explained why he took the step.

Munish Chauhan, station house officer in Surajpur police station said, “The company in his suspension letter said he would be barred from participating in any official work until the investigation against him was completed. In his note, the man denied all allegations and wrote that even if he is proven innocent, his reputation has been tarnished."

“No complaint has been filed by the family so far,” he added.

Allegations against the man were being investigated by an internal complaints committee, and he had been suspended for the duration, the police added.
