The shocked family informed their neighbours, who in turn alerted the police. The police rushed to the spot and shifted the victim’s body to Victoria Hospital for post-mortem. There was no suicide note found, the police said.

Nagaraju had stopped going to work for a year. He was an introvert, quiet and kept to himself. Depression may have driven him to take the extreme step, the police said. A case of unnatural death has been registered at the Rajarajeshwarinagar police station.
