A 24-year-old youth Munna felt heart-broken after his five attempts at getting enrolled in Indian Army all went in vain. His failures made his life almost untenable to him and he decided to end it.
However, he chose to live stream his blood-curdling act of hanging himself to death on Facebook took people aback. 2,750 people, who watched the live streaming posted by him, acted in a more sinister way. Nobody raised an alarm or alerted his family members or police.
The victim was identified as Munna Kumar, a BSc graduate and resident of Shanti Nagar under New Agra police jurisdiction. Early on Wednesday morning, he shared a 1:09 minute long video of his confession on Facebook before hanging himself on live video. Even though over 2,750 people watched the live video, nobody raised an alarm or alerted his family members.
He also left a six-page suicide note in which he blamed himself for not being able to crack the Army entrance examination and disappointing his parents.
According to Munna’s family, he had appeared for the entrance examination five times. Talking to TOI, Vikas Kumar, younger brother of the victim, said, “He was highly inspired by Bhagat Singh and wanted to join the Indian Army. Hours before committing suicide, he was normal and we had dinner together. No one in the family had any idea that he was going to commit suicide.”>
