He was said to have committed suicide when his wife, a trader and other close relations left home for their business.
The entire community was in mourning when the NAN Correspondent visited the place.
“Knowing that he is always at home since he lost his job as a truck driver because the truck was faulty, she kept knocking but there was no response.
“She then went to the window to see if she could gaze from the back and that was how she saw him hanging in his room.
“It is a sad experience. Nobody would have thought such a thing would have been planned by him.
“The police have just taken his corpse away. If you had come earlier, you would have seen it. He was a young man full of life,” the relation said.
