Rewa (Madhya Pradesh): A 21-year-old collegian allegedly committed suicide with a licensed firearm in Rewa in Madhya Pradesh after posting a note online in which he asked people not to grieve over his death or else he would come and scare them in their dreams.
Manvendra Singh, a BCom student in a Lucknow college and the only son of his parents, shot himself dead on Saturday, one of his kin said.
He was rushed to a hospital immediately but he was declared dead on arrival, the family member added.
"If anybody cries then I will scare them in their dreams. I wished to keep my parents' head high, but let them down. I have not committed anything wrong and nobody is responsible for whatever I am doing. Everybody should bid adieu to me with a smile on their face. If I have said or done anything wrong, then I am sorry," his post read.
Rewa City Superintendent of Police (CSP) Sachindra Prasad said a case has been registered and further probe was underway.
Other officials said the pressure of studies may have been the cause behind the extreme act.
