Lucknow: An employee of the Sahara group — who did not get his salary for four months — committed suicide by jumping from the eighth floor of his office building on Tuesday, police said.
Pradeep Mandal, a 45-year-old deputy manager with Sahara India Co-operative Society, came to the Sahara headquarters in Aliganj area in the morning.
His colleagues said he was keeping tense for the past few days as he had not been paid salary by the company for the past four months.
The Sahara group has not been able to pay salaries to employees in many wings, as its chief Subrata Roy is in Tihar jail for more than a year now over a legal issue.
Mandal is survived by his wife and a daughter.
He was dead by the time his colleagues and security staff took him to hospital, an official told IANS.
The body has been sent for post-mortem examination after completion of legal formalities.
