Pappu who lived in Ward No-7 of the NAC went live on his Facebook account late in the night on July 9 ahead of killing self. In the live video he could be seen playing a sad Bollywood song in the background and slitting his wrist with a shaving blade.
Ring of Pappu’s phone could also be heard in the live video pointing at a possible phone call from some Facebook friend who came across the streaming. However, he didn’t pick up the same.
The next day, a friend who visited Pappu’s house and knocked the door discovered him dead inside by breaking the same.
Local Additional Tehsildar and police rushed to the spot getting intimation on the death and seized the body for autopsy.
While it is still unclear why Pappu chose to commit suicide, some of his neighbours have shed some light on the possible reason. They claimed he used remain in inebriated condition and beat his mother. Unable to bear the torture the latter had relocated to her sister’s house a few days back.
However, possibility of ‘failed love’ angle is also being seen in the case and an investigation is underway.
