A 22-year-old B Tech student committed suicide at his Khoda residence after his father refused to buy him a motorbike, the police said. The deceased, Kishan Prasad, is said to have hanged himself from a cable wire on Wednesday night.
The police said that Kishan’s father, Rajendra Prasad, is a mason and lives in Prakash Colony in Khoda. Kishan was a student of a college in Geeta Colony, Delhi and used to travel by public transport.
“Kishan had joined college a year ago and was probably under peer pressure to buy a motorbike. I had told him that the financial situation did not allow us to buy a motorbike. However, I asked him to wait for a few months, after which I would buy him a second hand motorbike,” Prasad said.
The police was informed about the incident at 11pm on Wednesday and the body was sent for a post-mortem examination.
“The body was found hanging from a cable wire tied to a beam on the third floor of the house. The body was handed over to the family after post-mortem examination,” Awdhesh Yadav, station house officer of Khoda police station, said.
