HYDERABAD: Distraught over not getting a government job, a young Yerra Laxmaiah alias Karreryamala Narsimha died by suicide in Shameerpet of Cyberabad. His body was found in Lake Lalgadimalakpet on Monday.
Laxmaiah had been missing since December 30 and a case of disappearance had also been registered at Shameerpet police station. As teams searched for him, his body was found floating in the lake, Shameerpet Police Station Inspector V Sudheer Kumar said.
Police recovered a note from Laxmaiah’s bedroom, allegedly written by him, stating that he took his own life for failing to get a government job and failing to comply with his parents’ wishes.
Laxmaiah, from Mahabubnagar district, had recently graduated and started working in a private company in Shameerpet. He was renting near his place of work.
On December 30, his family members tried to contact him by phone, but found him turned off. They immediately rushed to her room and found it locked. When they entered, they found a note and his cell phone in the room.
Laxmaiah’s older brother Naresh said they found food, a mobile phone and a letter in the room. He said he always told Laxmaiah to start doing something instead of waiting for a government job and started working soon after he finished his studies. Naresh said he never imagined Laxmaiah would take such an extreme step.
The note read: “Those who do private work are not (treated as) humans and only those who do government work are (treated as) human. That’s enough. I am no longer able to handle it. Have no more hope for me. At least now I live in peace. Let’s not have big dreams.”
The body was returned to the family after an autopsy. The letter, his cell phone and other clues were recovered for further investigation.
