Kasargod, Dec 6: In a tragic incident that occurred at the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) depot in the city, a driver committed suicide by hanging in the depot itself.

P V Sukumaran (48), a resident of Pallikere in Neeleshwar near here is the person who killed himself.

Sukumaran was found dead by hanging in the first floor of the KSRTC depot of Kasargod on the night of Thursday, December 5. Though the staff of the depot rushed him to the nearest hospital he could not be saved.

Salary deduction is the reason for this extreme step, it is gathered. Sukumaran's father had died a few days ago. He had been on leave for 20 days and had joined duty only on the night of Thursday after the long absence.

Kasargod police have registered a case and are investigating further.
