MMS clip, threats from girlfriend's family forced Goa youth to kill self

KERI: A 21-year-old Goa boy's suicide note has revealed that he was pushed to end his life on August 5 as his girlfriend's family had threatened him after an MMS clip showing the couple together had gone viral.

Arjun Narayan Mainkar had hanged himself to death on August 5 and the police revealed details of his suicide note on Wednesday.

"I have agreed, in the presence of villagers and by signing an affidavit, to marry my girlfriend when she is 18. But I was continuously harassed by the girl's relatives and this resulted in loss of my peace of mind. To get rid of the pressure I am committing suicide. The chief minister of Goa should investigate my case and punish the culprits," Arjun wrote in his two-page suicide note written in Marathi.

Arjun, a resident of Morlem in Goa's Sattari, wrote his girlfriend's relatives had threatened to harm his sister and that had made him restless.

Before committing suicide he sent messages to his classmates saying, "Come with your open eyes to see my closed eyes."

Inspector Ramesh Gaonkar said, "Arjun's suicide case is a delicate issue. After his death his girlfriend twice made attempts to commit suicide. I met her and have built up some confidence in the depressed girl who is badly in need of emotional care. The issue has two sides and matter is complicated. We are investigating the case."

The girl's family had called a meeting and asked Arjun to marry her after the MMS came to light.

SP (North) Vijay Singh said no arrest had been made in the MMS case and added that investigations are in progress.
