A youth has reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself at Patharghata upazila in Barguna. He committed suicide out of personal grief over his father on Saturday night.
The deceased was identified as Md Shawon, 20, son of Md Jalal Hawlader of Manikhali village under Nachnapara union at Patharghata upazila. He was a first year student of Brojomohun College in Barishal.
A few hours prior to his death, Shawon wrote in his facebook “Everyone, please forgive me.” His facebook ID was opened under the name ‘Boro Bhai Shawon,’
Shawon had an altercation with a local youth out of previous enmity. However, there was reconciliation between both parties. At one stage of reconciliation, Shawon’s father tried to slap him in front of people, but Shawon fled the place.
Shawon might have committed suicide out of grief over his father, said chairman of Nachnapara Union Parishad Md Farid Miah.
