Police said Vijaya E, a 2012-batch KAS officer hailing, called Rani and said she had decided to commit suicide. Rani rushed to her house and found her trying to hang herself from the fan. She was then rushed to hospital.
Police said Vijaya was transferred to Hassan as Assistant Commissioner in last year. In June, she was named Administrative Officer, Hassan Institute of Medical Sciences. She challenged her transfer in the administrative tribunal and got a stay on it, but could not resume charge as another officer had already taken charge.
Sources said she was transferred after some outfits alleged that she was demanding bribes. The DC asked her to wait till she gets clearance to resume charge. Police suspects she tried to kill herself out of frustration over the developments.
