“He had returned to the city a few days ago after treatment. When he was leaving his house, he had, reportedly, told his parents that he would never be able to recover from his leg injury and disease,” Radheshyam said.

The victim took the extreme step after his brother had left for his classes at a coaching institute here. No suicide note was found, he said.
