Cuttack: A youth committed suicide after recording a video and blaming his ‘lover’ for him taking the drastic step. After turning off the video, he allegedly jumped in front of moving train on the embankment of Taladana Canal near Matru Bhavan on Saturday afternoon.
Maonj Swain was a resident of Niali area in Cuttack district. He was staying in a rented house in Rausapatna area in Cuttack city.
Swain, before taking his own life, made a video in his mobile phone blaming a girl for his decision to take the extreme step.
He also said in the recording that he was in a relationship with a girl hailing from Jajpur for the last few years. He was also heard saying in the video that though the girl had promised him to marry but later ditched him by deciding to marry another guy fording him to take his life.
Meanwhile, the local Government Railway Police (GRP) recovered the body and sent it for post-mortem. GRP personnel also seized a mobile phone and a suicide note from the spot, sources said.
Sources said considering the video as his death note, GRP is likely to register a case of abetment to suicide against her ‘girlfriend’.
