Frustrated with his hair fall problem, a 27-year-old software engineer committed suicide in the Indian city of Madurai on the first day of 2018, according to The Times of India.
The man, identified as R Mithan Raj, had been working at a tech firm in Bengaluru.
According to police, Raj was suffering from a skin problem on his scalp due to which his hair was falling. Despite experimenting with many medicines, nothing prevented the hair fall.
Raj later began his career at a local firm in the Indian state of Chennai and then joined an IT company in Bengaluru last year.
His mother had been looking for a suitable life partner for him but in vain. Meanwhile, Raj’s worry about his hair loss deepened.
The Indian, who was on holidays before he died, appeared depressed in the last few weeks.
On Sunday, Raj’s mother found him hanging from the ceiling of a room. He was later rushed to a local hospital with the help of neighbours, where Raj was declared dead. The police have registered a case.
