The police on Tuesday said a 23-year-old Thane man, who was apparently depressed after being unemployed, allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in Maharashtra's Thane district, reported news agency PTI.


The police officials said that the Thane man took the extreme step on Sunday evening at his house in Devi Chowk area of Dombivli, reported PTI.



An official from Vishnu Nagar police station said his family members found him hanging from the ceiling and alerted the police, who rushed to the spot and sent the body to a government hospital for post-mortem, reported PTI.


The official said that the man, a graduate, had failed to find a job and was depressed due to it. The police have registered a case of accidental death.

Meanwhile, officials on Sunday said a 35-year-old debt-ridden man allegedly committed suicide by jumping into a creek in Maharashtra's Thane city, reported PTI.

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

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

The official said the search resumed at around 7 am on Sunday and the body was located and fished out of the waters after four hours, reported PTI.

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

The police official said that the Kalwa police have sent the body for postmortem and as of now registered a case of accidental death, reported PTI.

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

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