Spurned by girlfriend, youth ends life in Patna | Patna News


PATNA: A youth, who had gone into depression after his girlfriend dumped him for another boy, allegedly committed suicide by consuming poison at his house on Kashinath Lane in Lohanipur under the Kadamkuan police station area here on Tuesday.
The youth, Shailav Raj, who was in his mid 20s, was working as an executive assistant on contract at Patna district transport office. SHO of Kadamkuan police station Vimlendu said preliminary investigations revealed that Raj was suffering from depression as his girlfriend had dumped him and went away with another boy.
“The family members rushed Raj to a local hospital where he was declared brought dead by the doctors,” the SHO said.
He added it was not clear what kind of poison Raj had consumed as no such substance was recovered from his bedroom.
Raj used to live with his mother and younger brother. His other relatives live separately in the same locality. Vimlendu said the family members alleged that Raj had a relationship with a girl and she had even lived at his house during last year’s Covid-induced lockdown.
He said no suicide note was recovered from the spot. “We have come to know from the family members that Raj used to tell the girl over phone that he would take extreme step if she refused to become his life partner,” the SHO said.
He added Raj’s family members have so far not submitted any written complaint in connection with the case. “However, they have alleged that Raj committed suicide due to the girl. It has come to light that while leaving, the girl had put a condition before Raj that she would marry him only if he arranged Rs 20 lakh for her. However, these allegations need to be verified,” he said.
Quoting Raj’s family members, the SHO said the girl, who was preparing for medical entrance examination, had shifted to Delhi after leaving Raj.
