Three men end lives in Sunkadakatte

Three men ended their lives in Sunkadakatte area on Tuesday night in separate incidents.

While two men hanged themselves, one in his room and the other from a tree in a school ground, the third was found floating in the sump of his rented house.

The police suspect the last case to be a suicide and not an accident.

Mahadevaiah, 42, was found floating in the underground water tank in front of his rented house at Mutturaya Swamy Layout in Sunkadakatte. He was a car driver.

His wife Triveni and his two daughters had been to their native place Mayaganahalli near Channapatna. The house owner had called Triveni late on Tuesday evening on seeing the door of their house ajar and Mahadevaiah nowhere to be found.

Triveni, accustomed to the careless ways of her husband, a chronic alcoholic and asked the owner to lock the door and hand over the keys to her husband when he turned up in the evening.

But Mahadevaiah was nowhere to be found even on Wednesday morning and when the owner saw the lid of the underground water tank open, he grew suspicious and peeped into it to find Mahadevaiah’s body floating.

The tank is 10 feet deep and six feet wide. On being intimated, the police retrieved the body. Police sources say that the man was drunk on Tuesday when the incident occurred.
Though the incident spot suggests it to be an accident, the police suspect it to be a case of suicide. Kamakshipalya Police have registered a case of unnatural death.

In the third incident in Sunkadakatte, a 23-year-old tailor was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his room at Kebbehalla. Amar hailed from Maski in Raichur district.
