A young orthopaedic surgeon in Kerala died by suicide Thursday reportedly on account of being harassed by many on social media platforms accusing him for the death of a seven-year-old child during surgery on September 23. The Kilikollur police in Kollam district have filed a case of unnatural death after 35-year-old Dr Anoop Krishna, who runs the Anoop Ortho Care hospital, was found dead at his home in Kadappakada. Moments before his death, he had reportedly scribbled the word ‘sorry’ on the walls of the bathroom. A senior police officer, probing the death, said it is too early to say if the doctor’s suicide has any connection to the death of a child during surgery a week ago. He said the police would investigate if the doctor was harassed or received online/offline threats.
