Harsh Narain Prasad, 28, an LLB part-III of a Gaya-based college, took the extreme step at his house in Kadamkuan locality around midnight Monday, during internet chat with the girl.

“Computer data shows they chatted till 11.47 pm. His last message was: ‘Ab tum na meri awaz sunogi, aur na dekh paogi’ (Now, you’ll neither hear me nor see me”, said the victim’s father Satyendra Narayan Prasad alias Mukul.

Thereafter, there were 20 missed calls on Harsh’s cellphone from the girl, claimed Mukul, a businessman. He insisted that the girl had witnessed the suicide as the web cameras were on when Harsh hanged
himself.

The police have seized Harsh’s laptop and started an investigation into the incident.

He blamed the suicide on the girl, a resident of Jagat Narain Road under Pirbahore police station in central Patna, with whom, he said, his son was in love.

He also alleged that the girl’s family had gone into hiding after his son’s suicide.

An FIR has been registered at the Kadamkuan police station, on the basis of a statement from the victim’s father.

Mukul said his son was friends with the girl since their school days. “She used to visit our house sometimes, but we did not suspect anything. Harsh was Magadh University topper in LLB part-2,” he added.

Kadamkuan police station SHO Sanjay Kumar said the cause of the suicide could not be ascertained. “No suicide note was recovered from the spot. The police is looking into the matter”, he added.
