A 39-year-old unmarried Bandra resident hung himself on Wednesday night, apparently peeved at the incessant squabbling at home. The deceased, Jitendra Parmar, was a resident of Krupa society near Mount Mary Church in Bandra, Mumbai.
On Wednesday night, when his brother Ashwin (37) returned home, the toilet door was closed and he assumed that Jitendra was in the shower.
However, when Jitendra did not come out of the bathroom for more than four hours, Ashwin panicked and called in the neighbours and the police around midnight. The door was broken down and Jitendra was found hanging from a nylon rope tied to an overhead cabinet.
"We did not get along well," said a tight-lipped Ashwin. "Jitendra was working at a private firm in Andheri and was unmarried. I have no idea why he did this," added Ashwin, who lives at the home with his wife, two children and their mother. He admitted, however, that his mother Jeeva had approached the police on Tuesday to complain about his wife. "But it was a domestic fight. There were no problems," said Ashwin.
Neighbours said Jitendra was well liked by them and his friends. "He never gave anyone any trouble. But he was looking tense for the past few days due to fights in the family," a neighbour said.
The case is currently under investigation by API Rajendra Suryavanshi of Bandra police station. "We have not ascertained the cause of the suicide. We are still questioning his friends and family," he said.
