Rahul Kumar, a 30 year old railway employee committed suicide by hanging himself with a ceiling fan today. Originally he was a resident of Gurdaspur, Punjab but lived in railway colony of Jammu since 2 years. His body was found hanged by his friend in the morning.
“Rahul was a good friend of mine. We worked together. Last night we had a talk and he was all ok. Today morning I went to call him due to some work. I knocked the door and then broke it. When I saw his dead body I was shocked so I gathered everyone there. He worked as a points man in the railway department and was un-married. He never talked anything about stress or his problems with me.” Kamaljeet Singh, Rahul’s friend said
“Rahul never had stress or tension on his face and never showed any signs of depression. We had good relations. He asked me for help several times. He went to his office regularly then buy stuff from a nearby shop and go to his quarter. Last night we came out together after the earthquake happened. He was fine and talked with a smile. Don’t know what happened to him.” added his neighbour.
Suicide cases in Jammu have shown a gradual increase since the year 2021 has started. Since January, around 15 suicide cases have been reported. It is better to share one’s life problems rather than ending the life itself.
