Two sui­cide cases have been reg­is­tered in Thane and Ul­has­na­gar in the past 24 hours.

On Thurs­day, a 23-year-old man hanged him­self from a ceil­ing fan in his house at Ul­has­na­gar 3.

Nikhil Vi­las Baghal, a busi­ness­man, was deeply in debt, said his fam­ily mem­bers.

He was alone in his house when he took the dras­tic step. One of the neigh­bours saw him hang­ing and broke open the door. He was taken to civil hospi­tal where he was de­clared dead.

A po­lice of­fi­cer from Ul­has­na­gar po­lice sta­tion said, “Dur­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion, Baghal’s fam­ily mem­bers said that he was in debt and hence had been de­pressed for some time. Baghal used to deal in gold.”

On Fri­day around 10.30am, a man iden­ti­fied as Samir Sadanand Birje, 36, com­mit­ted sui­cide by jump­ing in front of a train near Thane rail­way sta­tion. Birje, a res­i­dent of Sai Build­ing in Thane’s Sawarkar Na­gar, used to work in a pri­vate firm.

An of­fi­cer from Govern­ment Rail­way Po­lice (GRP) Thane said, “He had sus­tained se­vere in­juries. As soon as we found his ID card in his pocket, we con­tacted his fam­ily mem­bers.”

His fam­ily mem­bers said he was de­pressed.

Later, the po­lice found a sui­cide note say­ing he was de­pressed and that no one is re­spon­si­ble for his death.
