A 22-year-old man com­mit­ted sui­cide by hang­ing him­self from a ceil­ing fan of his rented house at Kopar Khairane on Wed­nes­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the de­ceased So­manna Poo­jari, a na­tive of San­gli lived at the rented house at Sec­tor 8 with two other peo­ple. He was a driver.

“When one of his room­mates reached home at 8.30pm, he found that door bolted from in­side. Even af­ter knock­ing on the door for a long time he re­ceived no re­sponse. He then peeped through a win­dow and saw him hang­ing from the ceil­ing fan,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer from Kopar Khairane po­lice sta­tion.

The room­mate then in­formed the po­lice and rushed Poo­jari to a nearby hos­pi­tal. But he was de­clared brought dead by the doc­tors.

The po­lice have re­cov­ered a sui­cide note from the house. In the let­ter, writ­ten in Marathi, the de­ceased had men­tioned a girl’s name.

In the let­ter, he said that he could not get her in this life and wished to be united with her in his next birth.

“We think he was in love with that girl but the girl did not re­spond or re­cip­ro­cate his feel­ings. He might have gone into de­pres­sion and ended his life. We will in­ves­ti­gate the case fur­ther to know if there was any other rea­son,” he added.

The po­lice have reg­is­tered an ac­ci­den­tal death case and are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case.
