BENGALURU: Upset over not being able to repay debt, a 29-year-old techie ended his life by hanging at his room in a paying guest accommodation at Electronics City here on Monday night. The victim Sethu Kumar, a native of Tamil Nadu, was working in a reputed IT firm and was staying at a PG accommodation in Neeladhi Nagar.
He had come to the city a few years ago and had recently shifted to the PG accommodation.
According to a senior police officer, Kumar had borrowed money from his friends and moneylenders last year. As they were demanding that he repay them, he shifted to PG accommodation. The lenders, however, tracked him and asked him for the money. Upset, Kumar ended his life.
