Student hangs himself during live video call with girl in Hyderabad


(G.N.S) Dt. 16
In yet another shocking suicide by a youngster in the city, a 20-year-old ITI student hanged himself while on a live video call with a girl, who had reportedly rejected his love proposal here, on Wednesday. A 20-year-old student committed suicide by hanging while on a video call with his lover at Vinayak Nagar in Neredmet on Wednesday morning. The victim, Ajmeer Sagar (20), was pursuing a course at an Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in the city.
According to the police, Ajmer Sagar, a native of Sircilla District, was living at his elder sister’s house in Vinayak Nagar. He was an ITI second year student at a government institute in Sanathnagar. The incident was around 10.45 am on Wednesday when Sagar’s sister and relatives went to their village.
Sagar was alone at home and the incident came to light when the owner of the house found his body hanging a few hours later. Incidentally, this is the second such incident in less than a month. On February 18, a management student committed suicide while on a video call with her boyfriend at a hostel at Kompally. The youth was in a relationship with a 19-year-old girl, pursuing B Sc (Nursing) course. Though the couple wanted to get married and even tried to elope in January, their parents foiled their plan and refused to accept their relationship. “Recently, Sagar’s family started looking for a bride for him.
“After his sister and relatives left home, Sagar was alone. Sagar’s sister contacted the house owner and said that he was not answering her calls. He then went to check and found the body hanging,” said J Venkat Reddy, Sub-Inspector, Neredmet.
Police, who booked a case based on a complaint lodged by Sagar’s mother Rajavva, have recovered a WhatsApp video call that was made and recorded from Sagar’s mobile phone. The video shows Sagar talking to a minor girl, who is believed to have rejected his proposal, and then committing suicide as she and another girl watch in shock.
Neredmet Inspector M Jagadish Chander said Sagar was in love with the girl, but she had rejected his proposal and their parents too had said no to the same. Following this, Sagar had gone into depression and had several times expressed disappointment with his family for rejecting his love. Chander said the 2-minute video recorded during the call using an app on the phone.
On Wednesday morning, he texted his girlfriend saying he will be happy to die in front of her. He then did a WhatsApp video call to the girl and committed suicide by hanging during their chat,” Neredmet sub-inspector P Nagaraju said. The 2.04-minute video call went viral on social media in which two girls were seen talking to him and observing him when he stood on a chair to commit suicide by hanging. Initially, the girls seemed shocked and amused, thinking it was a prank, however, later one of them was heard screaming. As he was not responding to her calls, the victim’s sister rushed home from her workplace and discovered his body hanging from the ceiling. Later, she informed police around 10.30am. Police suspect Sagar might have committed suicide an hour earlier. The body was shifted to Gandhi Hospital for an autopsy. Police have registered a case under Section 174 of the CrPC.
“The girl was watching him when Sagar hanged himself. Along with her, there was another girl too, who is seen waiving her hand asking him not to take the extreme step,” he said, adding that the mobile phone was sent to the Telangana Forensic Science Laboratory for examination.
Police said relatives of both parties were contacted and further investigation was on. The body was meanwhile handed over to the family after autopsy at Gandhi Hospital morgue on Thursday.
