Indore: A 29-year-old software engineer allegedly committed suicide by jumping before a train near Lokmanya Nagar on Thursday. It is said that he jumped before the train due to love affairs as a girl’s name was found written on his whole body. However, the reason for taking extreme step is yet to be ascertained.

The deceased has been identified as Manish Prajapati, a permanent resident of Betul. He was a software engineer and was employed in a private company. He was staying in a rented accommodation in Rajendra Nagar area. According to TI BL Mandloi, people who witnessed the incident informed police and a team reached at the spot immediately and found his body on railway track.

The body was later sent to District Hospital for autopsy. Police said that it is yet to be established whether he jumped before the train or accidently hit by the train as no suicide note was recovered from his body or spot.  A girl’s name Rina was found written on his whole body with some sharp object. This indicates that he committed suicide over love affairs. However, his family members are unaware about the girl and his love affairs.

His younger brother Abhijeet told media persons that Manish was quite depressed over some issue and was not in contact with family for about two months. He did not even respond to phone calls from family members. Abhijeet was earlier staying with Manish but he later moved to Pithampur as he got new job there. Police are taking statements of his parents to know the reason of his suicide and trying to trace Rina, whose name was found written on deceased’s body.
