A youth shot himself to death with a country-made pistol on Sunday night after being mortified over a video clip that allegedly captured a revenge attack on him going viral.
The deceased has been identified as Sandeep Sen, a class 12 student in Chhatarpur district.
Sandeep’s family members told police, his pride was hurt over an MMS circulating on WhatsApp that showed him being beaten up by a person, called Rapper Dada, and his accomplices.
Sandeep was arrested and later released on bail in September last year for knifing Rapper Dada. The attack and the MMS were to take revenge, it is alleged.
The youth’s close friend Subhash told the police the video clip had in it a voice of one of the unidentified accused saying ‘Rapper Dada ise bottle se mat maro (Rapper Dada, don’t hit him with a bottle)’.
Kotwali police station sub-inspector KN Arjariya said, "We are investigating the matter and trying to identify the accused who beat him up and made a video clip of their act. Police are also trying to find out the link between the MMS and attack on Rapper Dada.”
A suicide note recovered from the deceased’s body read, “RDX-The END. Miss you all specially Papa and Subhash. Baaki sab to kameene hain.” According to the police, Sandeep loved to be called as RDX.
