Depressed over studies, Rajya Sabha Jt Director’s son kills self
Twenty-one-year-old son of Rajya Sabha’s Joint Director allegedly committed suicide on Wednesday by hanging himself at their residence in South Delhi’s Sarojini Nagar area, police said on Friday. He was reportedly depressed over his poor performance in college.
The victim has been identified as Sushant Rohilla, who lived with his parents and younger sister in Sarojini Nagar’s Laxmi Bai area. His father, Jagdish Rohilla, is a Joint Director in Rajya Sabha while the victim’s mother is a school teacher in a government school.
The incident came to light on Wednesday afternoon when his mother returned home from school and found the main door open. When she entered, she found her son hanging from another door’s grill. After she raised an alarm, neighbours gathered around and informed the police.
Meanwhile, Jagdish was also informed about the incident who rushed back home. When the police team reached the spot, Sushant was taken to the hospital where he was declared dead on arrival. The body was kept in the mortuary till Thursday morning and after the post-mortem examination, it was handed over to the family members.
A senior officer close to investigation said Sushant was a final year student of BA-LLB in Amity University, Noida. Since Monday, he was not going to college. It was learnt that due to his poor performance in the final year, he was unhappy and dejected.
A suicide note was found from his possession that read: “No one is responsible for my suicide. I know I am doing wrong by ending up my life but I have no other option. I am unable to perform well in my studies because of which I am depressed. I am sorry mom and dad, but I have no reason left to live so I am going away.”
“There is no foul play in the incident. The autopsy report that was received on Friday also suggests suicide,” the officer added.
