Noida (UP), January 13
A 26-year-old software engineer ended his life at his rented accommodation in Noida, apparently upset over his failed love affair, police said on Wednesday.
His body was found hanging in his room in Navada village, under Sector 58 police station limits, in the morning after which officials were alerted about the incident.

According to a local police official, the man hailed from Pratapgarh district in Uttar Pradesh and worked as a software engineer in a private company in Sector 18 of Noida.

Based on the content of the purported suicide note and other evidence collected from the incident spot, the police are further investigating the matter to confirm the suicide angle, the official added. — PTI
