A 30-year-old man, who was undergoing treatment at JJ Hospital in Byculla, allegedly committed suicide by jumping from a window on the fifth floor of the hospital building around 2 am on Friday. The window, unlike others in the ward, did not have a grille.

The deceased, Subhash Patole, a farmer from Jalna district, was fed up over the prolonged stay in hospital, said his relatives. A cardiac patient, he had been admitted on May 25, and underwent a valve replacement surgery on July 28 after which he was undergoing post-operative care. Patole was entitled to free treatment as he was covered under the central government’s Jivandaayi Yojana scheme.

A security guard and ward boy, who spotted Patole in the compound, took him to the casualty ward where he died.

This year, it’s the second patient suicide case at the state-run hospital. In March, a schizophrenic admitted to the psychiatry ward, hanged himself in the toilet as he could not watch the cricket World Cup final match.

Kids’ uncertain future

“My husband was fed up with hospital stay and kept asking when he could go home,” said his widow Sanjivani. The couple have two kids.

She said that all windows in the ward are grilled, and that her husband managed to find one without grilles.

“His surgery was successful, and everything was fine. We have no clue why he ended his life,” said Patole’s brother-in-law Sahebrao Kamble.

A post-mortem was conducted on Friday, after which the body was taken to Jalna for the last rites.

Missing window grille?

Dean of JJ Hospital, Dr T P Lahane, said the patient was to be discharged soon. “His relatives told me he was behaving strangely and had become aggressive since a couple of days.”

Dr Lahane said that similar suicide cases at the hospital made the authorities fence all windows with grilles. “The window from which Patole jumped was at the entrance of the ward. The patient’s cot was at the other side,” said Lahane.

A suicide case has been registered at JJ Marg police station, said Police Sub-Inspector Vishwanath Bhosale.
