A ‘psychotics’ man, who was found hanged at a bar in Bihar’s Chhattisgarh state, was the victim of an “incredibly rare” case of “incurable mental illness,” according to the state police.
Police have registered a case against the man, S. Rajendra, who has been identified as Jagad Gautam, who is known for his alleged “incidents” and “incident after incident”.
The 40-year-old, who allegedly had a history of mental illness, hanged himself at his residence in Jamshedpur on Wednesday, police said.
The death of the alleged “psychotic” who committed self-immolation in an Uttar Pradesh bar is “unfortunate”, said the superintendent of police, Ramdas Raman.
The state government said the suicide was a “tragedy” and urged all citizens to remain vigilant.
The bar in Jammu and Kashmir, where the alleged suicide took place, is run by a barber, who had been a regular visitor to the bar.
The barber has been named as S Rajendra Singh.
The police said a case has been registered against the barber for alleged “murder and other offences against the deceased”.
The deceased had recently taken his first vacation to his family home in Bhopal.
