Fed up with persistent hair fall and too depressed to fight the problem, an IT engineer in India ended his life by hanging himself from a ceiling fan.
Identified as R Mithun Raj, 27-year-old man from Madurai was working with a software company in Bengaluru.
According to the Times of India, the techie had a skin problem on the scalp which might have led to excessive hair loss. He had also tried many medicines but none were effective. This had put him into severe depression.
Mithun had been on leave for last few days and was staying with his mother, Vasanthi in Jaihindpuram, Madurai. Vasanthi was also looking for a suitable alliance for her son and he had expressed his concerns about hair loss to his mother very often.
On Sunday, when Vasanthi went out to temple, Mithun hanged himself from the ceiling of the room. He was rushed to hospital but was declared brought dead.
A police case has been registered according to the complaint filed by Vasanthi.
