An Indian Navy officer, deputed at INS Kadamba naval base in Karwar, was found dead at his residence on Saturday morning.

According to police, Lieutenant Francis S D Costa, 29, hanged himself leaving behind a suicide note. In the note, he has said that he is going to end his life as certain things were not going right in his life, they added.

Work-related issues suspected

Navy’s public relations officer (PRO) Sukaran Singh said Costa had joined INS Kadamba just 20 days ago from the naval detachment centre in Nagapattinam.

“The death note does not give us any clue (about the incident). But we suspect (some) work-related issues as the reason for the suicide. The (suicide) note also reads that his wife and children should not be disturbed. Further investigations are on,” the police inspector who is handling the case said.
