A 33-year-old man committed suicide at his Dwarka home in southwest Delhi on Friday. Vijay Sehrawat had been denied an extension of his work visa by the Canada government and deported to India a month ago.

He had lived in Canada for 11 years and was married to a Canadian. “The couple had a year-old child and the deceased had applied for Canadian citizenship,” said a police officer. “While that did not come through, his work visa was also discontinued.”

K Jagadeshan, DCP (southwest), said, “Sehrawat’s suicide note said he was ending his life because he was troubled about being denied a visa extension.”

Sehrawat hanged himself from a ceiling fan. He had a management degree from Delhi and had gone to Canada after receiving a job offer from an MNC.

No one was said to have been home when Sehrawat took his life. When his father, colonel (retired) Ram Karan Sehrawat, returned at about 2 pm, he found the door of his room locked from inside. Police were informed and the door forced open.

A postmortem was conducted at the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital on Saturday and the body handed over to the family.

Police said they did not suspect any foul play. Sehrawat’s wife, who is in Canada, has been informed about his death.
Ram Karan Sehrawat said, “I won’t like to share anything with the media but he did not end his life due to the economic slowdown.”
