Mangalore, Jul 6: In a tragic incident, a 21-year-old youngster allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a moving train here on Thursday July 5.
The deceased has been identified as Renol Miranda, son of Wilfred Miranda and a student of St Joseph's Engineering College.
It is said that depression over failing in his fourth semester led him to end his life. He had lost his mother at an early age and his sister is working in Bangalore. His father remarried. Sources said that was in a depressed state for almost week.
As per the complaint filed with the police, he left home for college on Thursday at 7.30 am. Between 8 and 9 am he committed suicide at the railway track in Suterpet. However, the news of the tragic incident broke out only in the evening.
Renol reportedly sent SMS to all his friends before taking the extreme step, but it gave no clear indication that he was going to end his life, as he told them 'see you soon'.
Though he was depressed, his friends say he was an enthusiastic and fun-loving person. He was also a member of a music band as a guest guitarist/singer.
