An engineer with Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) allegedly committed suicide at his residence due to ill health and work stress, police said on Tuesday.
Dattatraya Mastud, 45, was found hanging from the ceiling fan of his room at his Khadakpada house late Monday night, Thane Police PRO Gajanan Kabdule said.
No suicide note was recovered from the spot, he said. According to preliminary investigation, Mastud was ailing from throat cancer and was under job stress.
He was nabbed by Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) last year in connection with graft charges, the PRO said.
When the incident took place, Mastud was alone in the room while other family members, including his wife and son, were sleeping in the adjoining room. The body was sent for post-mortem and a case of accidental death has been lodged in this regard, police said.
