‘Mamata Banerjee humiliated, harassed my husband in all possible ways’, wife of Bengal IPS officer who committed suicide

Gaurav Dutt was not promoted in last ten years, and his retirement benefits were blocked after his voluntary retirement

The wife of the former IPS officer who had committed suicide blaming the West Bengal government has said that her husband was “humiliated” and “harassed” by the state government in “all possible ways”. Gaurav Dutt, a 1986 batch IPS officer, was found in a pool of blood at his residence with a slit wrist on 19th February this year. He had left a suicide note saying mistreatment by the Mamata Banerjee government was the reason for his extreme step.

Dutt had written in his suicide note that the Mamata Banerjee has victimised for 10 years and went all out to “demoralise him due to her single-minded vendetta for reasons best known to her”.  He had added that West Bengal has a “Toxic and hellish” environment where not a single IPS officer can dare to open his mouth.

Talking to media, Gaurav Dutt’s wife said that her husband was harassed in all possible ways, and she will fight for her husband’s justice. She said that other dedicated officers should not suffer what was suffered by her husband.

“For the last ten years, he did not get any posting because of two baseless cases — one is related to human rights violation and one related to the vigilance commission. And for ten years they just kept the files pending or on hold without any reason,” she said giving details about the harassment faced by her late husband.

The IPS officer had taken voluntary retirement in 2018, but his retirement benefits were put on hold by the state government. Mrs Dutt said that he had tried to appeal to the Chief Minister and went to different officers but nobody helped. “They just held the file for ten years. No promotion or elevation,” she added.

“The way they behaved with him was very humiliating. He wrote a letter to Chief Minister. He tried to reach her so that he can explain her but she did not reply to the letter,” Mrs Dutt said. She said that when her husband asked for the file on the cases against him, they had said that they had lost the file. She also alleged that police took all the evidence of her evidence on the day he died.

According to a report by MyNation, the former IPS officer’s wife is also considering moving the Supreme Court to seek justice for her husband. Reportedly she has also sought an appointment with union home minister Rajnath Singh. According to the report, she is consulting a legal team and considering to file a writ petition in the Supreme Court.
