A youngster writes a suicide warning on Instagram, but police action saves the person's life
A man in Uttar Pradesh who had posted a message on social media indicating that he was preparing to hang himself to death was stopped from perhaps attempting suicide thanks to prompt action by the Gautam Buddh Nagar police, according to authorities.
The guy, who is in his early 20s, lives in the Gautam Buddh Nagar neighbourhood of Dankaur police station in the Chandrawal village. He uploaded a noose image and the statement "today everything will end" on his Instagram account about 2:00 PM on Saturday, according to a police officer.
The media cell of the Director General of Police in Lucknow discovered the post and promptly alerted the media cell of the Gautam Buddh Nagar police, who then took action, according to the source.
"Once the Instagram account was examined, attempts were made to identify the account holder's location and other information. The nearby Dankaur police station was informed after the location was found to be Chandrawal village. The local police post commander in Shyam Mandi was then alerted, and a squad quickly arrived to the youth's home, the police officer added.
The source said that the case was thoroughly investigated when the boy and his family were later taken to the police station.
The teenager informed the police that he had a quarrel with his wife the previous evening, which led to mental instability and sadness. As a result of all of this, the youth was considering suicide, the police official said.
The teenager was allegedly calmed down and given advice by authorities in front of his family, and then everyone quietly returned to their house, according to the police.
Police officers advised the people to call 112 in case of an emergency in the meantime.
