Three persons allegedly committed suicide in Bangalore since Friday night.

A 36-year-old lab technician committed suicide by hanging himself at his residence in Bapujinagar. The body of Ravikumar, who was working in a private hospital on Bannerghatta Road, was found by his wife, Kalavathi, on Saturday morning.

On Friday night, Ravikumar had gone along with his wife and two children to his relative’s house in Chandra Layout but had returned home alone as his family stayed back.
