Engineer ends life

Prabhakar, a native of Chennai, was residing in Pushpaveni Layout in Maruthi Nagar, Kaikondanahalli.

The victim’s body was found floating in the nearby Chowdammakere lake with deep cuts on his wrists, indicating he had slashed himself before jumping into the lake.

The police recovered a suicide note, in which Prabhakar has attributed his death to his failure to complete a project assigned to him two months ago by his firm. Prabhakar leaves his parents.
