Owing to heavy financial losses due to COVID-19 lockdown, a Nagpur businessman committed suicide by hanging himself on June 20. The caterer, who was a resident of Raj Nagar, has been identified as Upendra Tarachand Mahadule (48).
Upendra and his brother owned a ?Bichayat Kendra? at Jain Hotel situated at Gandhi Chowk in Sadar. The brothers also ran a catering business. As per preliminary investigation, the deceased had also lost huge amount of money in stock market due to the lockdown.
Because of the heavy loss and financial burden, Upendra had been feeling depressed for past few days. On June 20, Upendra, along with his brother, Jitendra was sitting at the bichayat kendra. At around 6:00 pm, he went to the terrace.
Assuming that Upendra might have gone home, Jitendra locked the shop and went home. When Upendra did not return home, his family tried to contact him over his phone. However, they received no reply.
At around 8:00 pm, Upendras wife and son rushed to the shop to look for him. As they reached the terrace, they found Upendra hanging from a ceiling hook. As the news of Upendras suicide spread, his friends and relatives gathered at the spot. After investigating the spot, Upendras body was sent for post-mortem by the police.
Police recovered a suicide note, in which Upendra had cited ‘financial crisis’ as a reason behind the extreme step.
