Pained by pet dog’s death, Pune student ends life

Pune, January 11

Pained by the death of his pet dog, a depressed 22-year-old management student hailing from Chhattisgarh committed suicide here, police officials said.

The incident happened around 8.30 pm on Monday when Kanwar Harshavardhan Raghav jumped out of the sixth floor flat of a relative in Thakkar Enclave, Rakshanagar area of Hadapsar.

He landed on the solid concrete ground and bled profusely as locals rushed him to a nearby hospital where he was declared dead.

Hailing from a family of army officers, a suicide note in a diary was recovered from the flat in which he mentioned the loss of his pet dog Siska eight months ago and his agony after that.

Raghav was living in Pune for the past couple of years and was a first-year management student at the Symbiosis Group of colleges.

Senior Inspector Vishnu Pawar said that in his suicide note, Raghav asked his parents’ forgiveness for his extreme step saying nobody should be held responsible for his death.

He mentioned how he was deeply anguished after his dog died some eight months ago, and how he was unable to bear the separation from his pet and hence decided to take his life.

Raghav’s body was handed over to his distraught family on Tuesday and his last rites were performed later in the evening. IANS
