BANGALORE: To prove his fondness for a friend, a 21-year-old Civil engineer committed suicide by hanging himself at his room in a PG centre near Munekolala in HAL police station limits on Sunday evening.
The deceased, Rajesh P, was a native of Thirthahalli in Shimoga district.
A diploma holder in Civil engineering, Rajesh was working with a private company in Whitefield.
The police said that Rajesh was found hanging from the fan in his room on Sunday.
He ended his life when he was alone in the room.
He has left behind a suicide note in which he has explained that he was very fond of his friend, Abhishek, his high school classmate.
Though he treated him with love and affection and tried to get close with him, Abhishek was drifting away from Rajesh.
Hurt by this, the latter had sent an SMS to the former on Saturday asking him why he was not respecting his friendship and Abhishek had not responded to the message.
“Later, Rajesh messaged him that he liked his companionship to the core and he would prove it.
The next day he ended his life.
He has also mentioned in the note that if there is a re-birth, he would like to be Abhishek’s friend,” the police added.
