A 29-year-old youth allegedly committed suicide by jumping into a 1,000-ft deep gorge near Palampur on Tuesday. The deceased has been identified as Arun Kumar, son of Jawaharlal hailing from Palampur.
Police officials said Kumar was missing since Monday evening. The family started searching for him on Tuesday morning. His motorcycle was parked a few metres away from Neugal Caffe, where his body was found lying in the gorge. The deceased had his own photography shop in the town. The police have registered a case of suicide. However, no suicide note was found.
The body was handed over to the family after a postmortem. The police are investigating the case. A Himachal Pradesh Agriculture University (HPAU) student had committed suicide one-and-a-half months ago at the same place.
