A 17-year-old first-year PUC student and a 21-year-old bank employee committed suicide in separate incidents on Thursday as they were allegedly upset at being spurned by girls.
Hemanth (17), a student at Sri Krishna International College in Chennamanakere Achkut police limits, jumped off the fifth floor of the college building on Thursday evening.
He was a resident of Uttarahalli and son of Sai Ram, an employee with a private company.
Police said the incident occurred around 5.30 pm and added no suicide note was found. However, they suspect that he was in love with a classmate and was upset after she spurned him. The college authorities, however, told the police that he fell accidentally.
Hemanth, who had sustained head injuries after the fall, was rushed to NIMHANS where he died later in the evening.
In the second incident, a 21-year-old employee of a Syndicate Bank ended his life by hanging at his home at J C Nagar in Mahalakshmi Layout on Thursday.
The deceased has been identified as Prakash, son of Manjunath and Geetha, who hail from Channapatna. Manjunath is also working with the same bank.
Police said the incident took place on Wednesday night after Prakash had dinner with his family. On Thursday, Geetha went to call him for breakfast and found him hanging.
Preliminary investigations revealed he was in love with a girl, who spurned him and this could have led him to take the extreme step.
