Badaun: A shocking incident has rocked Badaun as the body of a civil judge was discovered hanging in her government residence on Saturday morning. Identified as 29-year-old Jyotsna Rai, she served as a Junior Division Munsiff Magistrate in Badaun, Uttar Pradesh, 300 km southwest of Lucknow.

According to police sources, Rai's body was found suspended from a fan, suggesting prima facie evidence of suicide as the door was locked from inside. Upon receiving the distressing news, District Judge, DM Manoj Kumar, and SSP Alok Priyadarshi swiftly inspected the scene.

Forensic and canine units called for further investigation

Police noted disarray in Rai's room and called in forensic and canine units for further investigation. Sources suggest Rai had been facing personal troubles for some time. Her phone was found near her body. Originally from Mau, in eastern UP, Rai had been posted in Badaun since April 2023, following a stint in Ayodhya.

Unmarried, Rai lived alone in her government accommodation. Police revealed that the luggage and other material were found strewn in the adjacent room. However, officials have refrained from commenting officially on the incident.

SSP Alok Priyadarshi said that Rai, who generally arrived at her office by 10:30 am, failed to show up on Saturday. After repeated attempts to contact her, colleagues grew concerned and eventually informed the police. Upon entry into her residence, Rai's lifeless body was discovered, prompting a comprehensive investigation into all possible angles.

Born on August 5, 1995, Rai completed her schooling in 2010, followed by her intermediate studies in 2012. She pursued LLB (HONS) and passed the PCS-J examination, beginning her judicial career in Ayodhya in 2019 before transferring to Badaun.

A colleague described Rai as having a routine Friday at work and leaving around 5:30 pm, exhibiting normal behavior. She resided in a 2 BHK flat, with her body found in the adjacent room hanging from a ceiling fan.
