The other suicide took place at the end of March. Jaswinder Singh “Jassi” was a small time cable operator of Amritsar. According to a 2013 Tehelka report here the Punjab cable business has more or less become the monopoly of Fastways Cables, which is a company with linked to the Badals. (Interestingly, this report tells us how a Punjabi channel Day & Night TV was forced to close shop). Jassi fell foul of the wrong persons and knocked about for justice. He was a key witness in a cable TV sex scandal but he was, he claimed in his suicide note, forced to turn hostile. He tried to retract his testimony through an affidavit but was unsuccessful. As the icing on the cake, his small time cable operation began to feel the heat. He appealed to the authorities, and when he was turned down, he took out a bottle and consumed the contents (see video ) where he can be seen and heard shouting in Punjabi, “I will die” pulling out a bottle out of his pocket and putting it to his mouth.
