A 28-year-old cab driver allegedly committed suicide moments after taking a selfie at his house in Ramanthapur area, police said on Thursday.

 

Kranti Kumar, a native of Nalgonda district in Telangana, hanged himself from a ceiling fan on Thursday. Before that, he apparently took a selfie (self-photograph) with a noose of cloth around his neck.

 

The mobile phone from which the selfie was taken was found in his shirt pocket, said inspector Y Narasimha Reddy of Uppal police station.

 

A suicide note was found in which he had written that he was fed up with the life due to financial and family problems.

 

"In the phone, a photo was found where Kumar is seen with a piece of cloth around his neck, tied to the ceiling," police officer said. An investigation is underway, he said.
