New Delhi, Dec 3: A 24-year-old man allegedly committed suicide by hanging from a ceiling fan at his residence in North East Delhi's Surajkund area, police said on Dec 2.
The deceased Dinesh Kumar, a Chartered Accountant working with a private firm in Noida, was living with his parents and elder brother in east Delhi's Ghonda area and took the extreme step as he was under depression.
According to a note recovered from the spot written by the deceased, three of Kumar's friends were blackmailing him since sometime and were planning to implicate him in a false case. The incident came to light on Sunday night.
"The deceased had his dinner with his family members and retired to his room. After a while when his mother went to check on him, she found him hanging from the ceiling fan inside his room. The woman then raised an alarm and police was informed," a police official said.
The body was sent for post-mortem examination and later handed over to the parents for final rites. Police have registered a case and investigations are underway. Any arrests would be made only after the role of the accused in the case is established, police said.
