Another case of suicide came to light in the state capital of Delhi on August 21. The Personal Assistant of Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar committed suicide earlier today at his residence in south Delhi, police said. Narendra Singh Tomar, the Minister of Rural Development, Panchayat Raj and Mines, was accompanied by him on several occasions.
The official identified as 30-year-old Kundan Singh, resided with his family in Laxmibai Nagar near Sarojini Nagar, south Delhi. Singh’s family included wife Shivani and a six-month-old son. The victim, upon discovery, was immediately rushed to Safdarjung Hospital but was pronounced dead by a doctor upon arrival.
