Debt-ridden man ends life by jumping into creek in Thane.

Earlier on Sunday, June 17, a 35-year-old debt-ridden man allegedly died by suicide by jumping into a creek in Maharashtra’s Thane city, the police told PTI.

Bablu Vishwakarma, a resident of Indira Nagar in the Wagle Estate area, jumped into the Kharigaon creek in Kalwa from the Saket bridge at around 7 p.m. on Saturday, Thane Municipal Corporation’s disaster management regional chief Yasin Tadvi said.

After being alerted, fire personnel and the disaster management cell team members launched a search, which was halted later at night.

The search resumed at around 7 a.m. on Sunday, and the body was located and fished out of the waters after four hours, a police officer said.

The deceased was reportedly under heavy debt and was depressed, so he resorted to the extreme step, a police official said.

The Kalwa police have sent the body for a postmortem, and as of now, a case of accidental death has been registered, he said.

Earlier, the police received information that two people, including a woman, had jumped into the creek from the Saket bridge.

The Kalwa police confirmed on Sunday that only one person jumped into the creek, and his body was recovered.
