Hyderabad: A man committed suicide by hanging after going live on a social networking site on Saturday at a lodge in Vanasthalipuram.
The man identified as Shaik (36), a native of Prakasham in Andhra Pradesh, checked into a lodge at Vanasthalipuram on Saturday along with his friend Venugopal. He is survived by wife and two children.
When Venugopal had gone out on some work, the man who was alone in the room took his mobile phone and went ‘live’ on a social media platform. “I loved a girl and was duped by my friends and others. I am ending my life,” he said before hanging to the ceiling fan using a lungi.
The family members and friends of the man who noticed him in the act on social media platforms tried calling over his phone. However, the phones went unanswered. Meanwhile Venugopal reached the room and found Shaik not responding to his calls.
Immediately, he alerted the management of the lodge who informed the police about it. The Vanasthalipuram police reached the spot and after breaking the door shifted him to hospital. Doctors had pronounced him dead.
A case is registered by the police and an investigation is going on.
