Jamshedpur, 19 Dec: A 22-year-old industrial worker committed suicide by hanging at Adityapur Guest House under the Adityapur police station area on Monday night.
The deceased was identified as Nutan Napit, a resident of Manoharpur block in West Singhbhum and he will be working in an industrial unit near Mode Usha in Gamharia living in rented accommodation in Gamharia.
Suicide cases are on the rise, especially by young people in Adityapur. In the past two weeks, around 10 people, mostly young people, have committed suicide in Adityapur and the adjacent Gamharia police station area.
Adityapur OC Rajan Kumar police station said investigations are ongoing and based on their preliminary investigation it seems that the deceased must have entered one of the rooms in the guest house which is a private establishment when no one was around.
“We found the body by breaking down the door in front of local residents, but the room was sealed again so that the family members of the deceased did not appear,” said OC.
Kumar said it was only a case of suicide as the door was padlocked from inside but the reason behind industrial worker’s drastic move inside private guest house room needs proper investigation. After taking statements from family members, a thorough investigation will be carried out.
