A 23-year-old man, working as a bartender at a five-star hotel in the city, hanged himself to death at his rented accommodation in Sector 17 on Saturday night, police said.

The man allegedly took the extreme step due to a failed love affair. No suicide note was found but the victim had updated his Facebook status as "Good Bye".

Friends and neighbours immediately informed the police after Neeraj Bansal, the victim, did not step out of his flat for long. The police found Bansal hanging from the ceiling fan.

The police have initiated an investigation into the case and the body was handed over to the victim’s Delhi-based family after the post mortem.

ASI Sunil Kumar, investigating officer at the Sector 18 police station, said nothing suspicious was found in his mobile phone records too. "We are questioning his friends and colleagues to find out the reason behind the extreme step," added Kumar. The victim's family, however, has alleged foul play in the incident.
