BANGALORE: Two persons ended their lives in separate incidents in the city since Saturday.
Unable to bear harassment by his higher officer, a car driver employed at a NCC office located on M G Road ended his life by consuming poison at his residence in Gayatrinagar in Subramanyanagar police station limits on Saturday.
The deceased Sunil Kumar, 35, was a native of Shimoga. He was married to Bhavani for three years and the couple had a daughter.
Police said Kumar had not been going to work since February 1 and authorities from his office had issued a notice to him. On April 16, he had replied that he was undergoing family and health problems and would resume to work shortly.
On Saturday evening, his neighbour found him in an unconscious state and informed the police. He succumbed to injuries while being taken to a hospital.
“His suicide note states that he had taken the extreme step as the NCC Group Commander A K Pateria was forcing him to do personal works and used to harass him. But Pateria had started working in the city only a few days before Kumar stopped going to office,” police added. He had consumed poison when he was alone to his residence.
Unable to Clear Debts, Man Ends Life
Unable to repay debts, a 25-year-old man ended his life by hanging himself from a tree near Byrappanahalli in Bannerghatta police station limits on the outskirts of the city on Sunday.
The deceased Hanumantharaju, a labourer at the Bannerghatta Biological Park, used to stay with his sister in Byrappanahalli.
Police said that he had borrowed loans from a few persons but was unable to repay them. As money lenders used to force him to clear the debts, he was depressed and he hanged himself from a tree on a vacant land near his residence on Sunday morning.
However, sources said a money lender had taken away Hanumantharaju’s bike for not returning the money and this had depressed him. It is also said that the deceased used to gamble.
Bannerghatta police registered a case.
