The Patna police have found that the law student who hanged himself to a ceiling fan at his residence in Pirbahore,Patna,late on Monday night had kept his laptop webcam on for his girlfriend to see him take the extreme step.
The police said Harsh Narain Prasad (28),a third year LLB student of a Gaya college,had arguments with her and threatened her that he will end his life. The police did not find any suicide note.
During its probe,the police found that Prasad had been chatting with his girlfriend from another town on his laptop with the webcam on till 11.30 pm. The identity of the girl has not been revealed.
The police also found 17 unanswered calls on the Prasads mobile phone. They said the girl might have been trying to dissuade him from taking the extreme step.
However,the police are surprised that she did not alert the boys family. The law students father,Satyendra Narain Prasad,has told the police that it was a case of abetment to suicide. No case,however,has been lodged against the girl. We have collected the evidence and may soon lodge case against the girl, a senior police officer said. Prasads father,a businessman,said he was not sure why his son took such a step.
