Nagpur: A 49-year-old high school headmaster Sunil Baban Bisen committed suicide on Tuesday at around 10:30 am by jumping into a well situated near Umred in Nagpur.
The headmaster, who was a resident of Umred, allegedly took the drastic step due to financial tension. Bisen on Monday night told his wife Suhasini that he was going to his friend’s house for a party but never returned. In the morning, worried Suhasini along with other family members started enquiring about him in the area.
Meanwhile, Dharmaraj Hajare, who owns the well, spotted a footwear and spectacle in the vicinity of the well. The police then started looking for Bisen after receiving a complaint from his friend Loknath Nikose.
Cops then removed Bisen’s dead body and sent it for postmortem at a government hospital in Umred. His last rites were performed at a cemetery in Kuhi village in the presence of family members. Police Inspector Vilas Kale will carry out further investigation.
