Daijiworld Media Network – Kundapur (SS)

Kundapur, Feb 8: Police constable Rama Gowda (32) ended his life at Kasarakod Eco Beach in Honnavar taluk which came to light on Tuesday. It is suspected that the deceased cop was either unwell or was suffering from financial distress due to online betting.

Rama Gowda, son of Nagesh Gowda, hailed from Nadu Maskeri village of Kumta taluk in Uttara Kannada district. Rama Gowda was serving as a police constable in Kundapura police station.

He had abstained from duty since February 2 without informing his colleagues or his superiors. His mobile phone was also found switched off for the last 4-5 days, it is learnt.

On Tuesday, his mortal remains were found in a park near the Eco Beach where he had hanged himself to a tree. A bag was also found nearby, it is learnt. Kundapura SI Eraiah and other staffers visited the spot in Honnavar where Rama Gowda had ended his life. Honnavar police have registered a case.

Rama Gowda was an accomplished volleyball player. He was of late confined to living alone and had never confided about his home or his ordeals with anyone, it is learnt. It is also said that he was unwell for some time. He had taken loans from different banks to take part in online betting games. Police department officials suspect that he might have committed suicide for this reason. A death note written by him that was found said he was unable to get his younger sister married off and so he had sought a government job for her.

    Volleyball player blew the final whistle himself before the Referee.... Gambling is the worst addiction of all where you loose everything and yet continue betting with others money... It is even more catastrophic for the society than substance abuse... Feel sad for the young cop and his distressed family... Government must think in lines of giving employment to his sister... I hop local politicians will show kind heart in this... RIP to the departed soul....

    It is strange that people don't like government jobs even after getting paid 4 times higher than Non-government employees.
