The city reported a rash of suicides on Thursday and Friday. A second-year PU student ended her life under a train Thursday night in Yeshwantpur Railway Police limits.
Akshita (18) was to have returned from her tuition class around 8.30 p.m. When she didn’t, her worried father, a mechanic with BMTC, approached the Kodigehalli police. Late in the night, the Yelahanka Station Master alerted the Kodigehalli police of a body lying near the railway track near Sahakarnagar. It was that of Akshita. She left a note saying no one was responsible for her death.
The police said she was a good student and that her parents were not sure why she took her life.
Cashier ends life
Harish (30), the cashier of a store, hanged himself at his home in Nagavarapalya Friday afternoon. His sister Manjula, who found his body, called the Byappanahalli police. The reason is said to be financial problems in the family.
Money problems are also said to be the reason for Jacob (35), a businessman, to set himself ablaze on Friday. The police said the Mathikere resident went to an abandoned house in Nelamangala and doused himself with petrol.
The police recovered a suicide note near his motorcycle parked nearby which said his creditors were harassing him after he incurred huge losses in the business.
