After witnessing the death of his childhood friend before his eyes in a road accident, a young man committed suicide in Hyderabad on Wednesday.
The incident occurred near Moosapet in Kukatpally when deceased G Harikrishna and K Ramesh, who were on a motorbike, met with an accident.
Their motor bike met with an accident in which G Harikrishna, a software engineer, died on the spot when a truck hit the two-wheeler. K Ramesh, who was driving the bike, survived the accident.
Witnessing his friend’s death before his eyes, Ramesh could not overcome the shock and therefore went to a nearby area, Bharat Nagar, and committed suicide.
Ramesh’s body was found on a railway track. Police said he apparently jumped before a train to end his life.
The youth, both in their twenties, hail from Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh and had been living together in a hostel in Kukatpally.
Harikrishna had returned from Malaysia a few days ago and was working with a software company. Ramesh was an employee of a private firm.
