A techie working out of Hyderabad, who committed suicide on Wednesday by inhaling nitrogen gas, had meticulously researched painless ways to end his life on the internet. His unusual suicide was the first such case the Hyderabad police has seen.
Lucky Gupta, 34, was driven to despair after his start up – a social networking app called Kqingdom – failed to take off. He left behind a suicide note in which he mentioned that he had found that nitrogen gas asphyxiation was one of the best recommended methods for a painless death. In his note, he also suggested that his family return the gas cylinder he had used to the shopkeeper so that they could collect the security deposit of Rs 5,000 that he had paid.
