HYDERABAD: A 44-year-old software engineer ended his life by hanging himself at his house in Ameerpet in Telangana’s Hyderabad district on Sunday.
Narisetty Bala Sridhar — a team leader in Tata Consultancy Services — had been staying at Pallavi Apartment in Siddhartha Nagar of Ameerpet along with his wife Padma and their two children.
At 9.30am on Sunday, Padma, along with her children, went to a supermarket near their house to buy groceries.
Sridhar was alone at home.
When Padma returned home with the children, they found Sridhar hanging from the ceiling fan in the bedroom with a rope.
Padma informed her brother Sudheer Kumar about the incident and when he rushed to her house, Padma was found unconscious.
Sudheer’s 14-year-old niece informed him that Padma fell unconscious after her father’s suicide.
Sudheer shifted Padma to a nearby hospital for treatment and her condition is out of danger.
In his complaint to police, Sudheer mentioned that Sridhar had attempted suicide six months ago due to financial problems.
“The family believes that Sridhar ended his life due to financial problems as people who borrowed about Rs 40 lakh from him have not returned the amount,” SR Nagar inspector Saidulu said.
There was no suicide note.
“Based on the complaint of Sridhar’s brother-in-law Sudheer, we have registered a suspicious death case under Section 174 of the CrPC,” he added.
