Mangaluru, Dec 16, 2015: A person identified as Chandrahas Shetty (36), a resident of Kodakkal, Shivanagar near Padil in the city has reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself in a commercial building at Kodakkal on December 15, Tuesday.
The deceased was a pigmy collector of Mangala Co-operative Society and reportedly had availed several lakhs of rupees as loans while he had also lent money to several people who reportedly had not repaid it to him. Sources say huge debt might have driven him to the extreme step.
It has been gathered that Chandrahas was as usual when he met some of his friends on Tuesday. However, when he did not return home in the night his anxious family members began a search and found his body hanging from a road in the building.
The deceased has left behind his mother and two married sisters.
A case has been registered by Mangaluru Rural Police.
