Medical student kills himself

A third-year student of medicine committed suicide at a house in Nerkundram due to depression caused by the absence of his mother with whom he was very attached.

The police said the victim, Thirumal, a native of Krishnagiri, was good at studies and scored high marks in his Plus Two examinations.

He was pursuing medicine at the Government Kilpauk Medical College and Hospital.

He and his mother were staying in a rented house in Nerkundram for the past one year. Thirumal was suffering from depression as his parents were separated. He was more attached to his mother.

A few days ago, his mother went to Krishnagiri, but he could not bear her absence and cut his vein, according to the police.

One of his friends who noticed it, immediately rushed him to Rajiv Gandhi Government Hospital for treatment.

Two days later, he had a long conversation with his mother over phone. He called his friends too who were taking care of him. But before they reached his house, he hanged himself from the ceiling fan. The police had recovered a suicide note from the house.

Assistance for overcoming suicidal thoughts is available on the State’s health helpline 104 and Sneha’s suicide prevention helpline 044-24640050.
