On 22nd may Mumbai Police filed a case of suicide of a lady doctor who faced discrimination in her work place by her three seniors.
Payal Tadvi, committed suicide as she found herself under a continuous discrimination by her seniors, who worked along her. 'TADVI' is an Adhivasi Muslim Community, but beside this she achieved this position and she was first in her family to become a doctor for which her parents were proud of her.
Her parents Abeda and Salim with her husband Salman reported that Hema Ahuja, Bhakti Mehare and Ankita Khandelwal - Payal's seniors always discriminated her, teased her and bounded her asway from many opportunities and now she has committed suicide feeling depressed. The trio have been booked under Sections 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code, Prevention of SC/ST Atrocities Act and the Maharashtra Prohibition of Ragging Act, and IT Act.

Payal faced a lot discrimination and has also complaint many times but didn't get a good response from the heads. Her husband said he himself filed a complaint against those three to the Department Head of Gynaecology Section, Dr. Yi Ching Ling but he was in support of all those three.
Payal's mother said that her daughter cried on calls and tell her about all happening with her. She said that they cleaned there wet foots by payal's mattresses after bathroom use and also litters on her bed. They also commented that "these caste people don't know anything and gets admission through quota."
This case awakes many nationalists to speak for discrimination against caste as it still owns a place in country. For this case a campaign has begun on social media named as #JusticeforPayal. Many rallies are seen but by all this one thing is confirmed to the society that in 21st CE also there are some backward thinking demons in society that too in a field of Medical Science.
