techie-to-commit-suicideHYDERABAD: Three persons, including two for love-related reasons, committed suicide since Tuesday night. A 35-year-old finance company employee committed suicide due to alleged harassment by his in-laws, while a 30-year-old software professional and a class IX student committed suicide at their houses due to failure in love.

In the first case, the victim was identified as B Uday Bhanu, 35, a resident of Ameerpet. Since the past three years, Uday has been living separately from his wife Leela Rani due to personal problems. On Tuesday evening, Uday was found hanging from the ceiling fan in his flat by roommates. In a suicide note, Uday stated that harassment from his in-laws was the reason for his suicide, S R Nagar inspector N Shankar said. Uday was also allegedly upset about his wife acting in a short film called ‘Ahalya’, but the inspector said that the victim did not mention anything about his wife in the suicide note. Police have registered a case under section 306 (Abetment to commit suicide) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and shifted the body for a post-mortem examination.

In another incident, 30-year-old Ravindar Singh, a process manager at a software firm in Hi-Tec City, has committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan at his house in Balaramnagar of Safilguda on Tuesday. According to police, Ravindar was in love with a woman from the city and became mentally disturbed after the family members refused to agree for their marriage.

Before killing himself, Ravindar called up his lover and informed her about his decision to commit suicide. Ravindar’s lover immediately alerted the victim’s brother Mahindar, but by the time he arrived at the house, Ravindar had already committed suicide, Neredmet inspector K Ramesh said. A case was registered under section 174 (Suspicious death) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).

In a similar incident, a class IX student, D Navneeta, 16, from Nagi Reddy Guda in Moinabad, committed suicide by hanging herself at her house on Tuesday night due to failure in love. Navneeta was in love with one Suresh from the neighbourhood. On Tuesday, her parents came to know about the affair and chided her. As her parents did not agree for their marriage, Navneeta committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan with a stole on Tuesday night.
