Man slits his throat in father's office

A 31-year-old man died after allegedly slitting his throat in his lawyer father’s office on Richmond Road, central Bengaluru, on Saturday, police said. 

Mithun P dropped out of an engineering course and had some personal problems. Based on his parents’ advice, he started an online business to come out of the trauma. 

Mithun frequently visited the office of his father, Prabhu S, who is a lawyer. On Saturday, he went to the office when his father was away. He slit his throat, probably with a knife or a broken glass piece. Prabhu had the shock of his life when he returned to the office around 9 pm and found his son lying in a pool of blood. 

Mithun was taken to a hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. Police found a knife at the spot but there was no suicide note. A senior police officer said they were investigating what drove Mithun to suicide.
