Magnaluru, Apr 14: In a shocking incident, city-based budding cartoonist and food blogger Nikhil Pai has allegedly committed under mysterious circumstances.

According to police, the 29-year-old ended his life by consuming poison. 

It is not yet clear what exactly persuaded the married man to resort to the extreme step. The police said he had gone out after quarrelling with his mother at home yesterday. When he did not return, his family filed a missing complaint on Sunday morning.

He was found dead in his apartment at Palemar on Sunday. The body was shifted to AJ Hospital and later handed over to family. The funeral was held at night.

He is survived by his mother, wife, and his younger sister.

Following his father's death two years ago, he had taken up the management of Deepak Sales and Services fuel pump at Baikampady.

An alumnus of St Aloysius College, Pai was a popular food blogger and one of the founders of ‘The Three Hungry Men’, said to be Mangaluru’s first and only food reviewing body.

He was an amateur cartoonist and used to contribute to coastaldigest.com. He was also a passionate traveler and visited many countries.

A case has been registered at jurisdictional Kavoor police station and investigations are on.

RIP. He was the happiest Mangalorean until his marriage. A thorough probe needed to bring the truth to light.

Was there any particular reason for his decision? What was wrong after marriage ?

Tragedy. You taught the people of Namma Kudla how to lead life and finally failed in your own life? May your soul rest in peace.
