Two separate cases of suspected suicides were reported from the Shanti Park area of Mira Road on a single day.
In the first case the body of a 22-year-old youth was found hanging to the pole of a playing equipment installed in the municipal garden, on Thursday morning. The deceased, who has been identified as Rahul Yadav (22) was unemployed, and stayed in the Gokul Village area of Mira Road.
Prima facie it appears that he used a wire to hang himself to the pole of the swing, during the wee hours of Thursday, said the police who suspect the deceased to be a drug addict.
Local residents have alleged that the Mahavir Udhyan, where the incident occurred, had become a safe haven for alcoholics, junkies and peddlers who frequented the place mostly during the night time.
The deceased was into a relationship with a girl, who had recently registered a non-cognizable offence against him for harassing and abusing her.
In the other case, a 27-year-old woman (name withheld) allegedly ended her life by hanging herself to the ceiling of her apartment in Shanti Park.
The woman was staying in a live-in relationship with a person, whom the police have summoned for questioning, sources said.
“We are conducting detailed investigations in both the cases.” confirmed Senior Police Inspector- Sandip Kadam.
While suicide notes were not recovered in any of the cases, the police have registered accidental death reports (ADR) in context to both the incidents and sent the bodies to the civil hospital for post-mortems, reports of which were awaited.
