Buxar District Magistrate Mukesh Pandey, IAS (BH:2012), was found dead at Ghaziabad railway station on Thursday night.
Prime facie, it appeared to be a case of suicide. According to GRP, a suicide note was recovered from the spot.
The suicide note stated, "I am Mukesh Kumar Pandey, IAS, 2012 batch, posted as DM buxar. I am committing suicide of my own volition. After my death, inform my relatives."
Interestingly, the suicide note has no mention of any reason for the young bureaucrat to take such an extreme step.
32-year-old Pandey was posted as DDC in Katihar district before being transferred to Buxar as District Magistrate on July 31. He had a three-month-old daughter.
