Bangalore, Apr 10: In two separate suicide cases, two software engineers allegedly hanged themselves to death in their flats on Tuesday for different reasons.

In first incident, Manoj Kumar (36) ended his life by hanging himself in his room at a paying guest accommodation in Shantiniketan Layout, HAL police station limits, on Tuesday morning.

A resident of RT Nagar, Manoj was working with a leading IT firm in Bangalore. He was married to Pramila, also a software professional, two-and-a-half years ago. The couple have a one-year-old son, Hrithik.

Police sources said Manoj had stated in the death note purportedly written by him that Pramila was threatening to lodge a complaint of dowry harassment against him and his family members and get them all arrested. Miffed at this, Manoj had left home two months ago and was living alone at Tirupati PG Accommodation in Shantiniketan Layout.

Jitendra Kumar, the elder brother of the deceased said Pramila and her mother Devi were “too demanding and were ridiculing him for not earning much.”

“Pramila and Devi had come to our house in Koramangala on Monday night and created a huge ruckus threatening us that they would file a dowry harassment case against us. When I tried calling my brother, his phone was switched off. However, on Tuesday morning, I got a call from the police saying my brother was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his room at the PG,” said Jitendra Kumar.

Police said people at the PG accommodation had broken open Mnoj room when he did not answer any calls on Tuesday morning, only to find him hanging dead.

In the death note recovered from his room, police said Manoj had blamed his wife and mother-in-law for his death. HAL police have registered a case against Pramila and Devi for abetting suicide.

In an unrelated incident, a 33-year-old software engineer allegedly hanged himself at his flat in Ramamurthynagar on Tuesday night, following a heated argument with his wife.

Gopal Kumar, a senior testing engineer at a private company and a native of Tamil Nadu, was married to Geetha, and the couple have a two-year-old daughter.

According to police, Gopal had earlier married Shanthi and had a seven-year-old son from her. The couple later parted ways owing to family pressure.

Police said he could not come out of the emotional trauma his break-up with Shanthi had caused him.

On Monday night, Gopal and Geetha fought over some issue and an upset Geetha went to bed.

When Gopal did not enter the bedroom, Geetha grew suspicious and went out to check and found him hanging dead from a ceiling fan in another room.

Neighbours who rushed to the flat hearing Geetha's cry, alerted the police.
