Lucknow: A 25-year-old man allegedly committed suicide while chatting live on webcam in Varanasi, following an argument with his girlfriend.

He has been identified as one Ankit Srivastava and his parents have told police that he killed himself while chatting on webcam with his girlfriend, who watched the horrific incident, but did not stop him.

The family members further said that Ankit’s mother saw his body hanging from the ceiling of his room. The webcam of his personal computer was found switched on and his broken mobile phone was lying on the floor. They suspect that Ankit must have smashed his mobile before committing suicide.

According to the family members, Ankit was an event-management professional and was short-tempered. He also used to chat with the girl every night. However, the police is doubtful whether he committed suicide while video-chatting or after an argument over the phone.

The incident happened on Saturday but surfaced only on Monday after the police filed an FIR against the girl. Santosh Singh, SP of Varanasi informed that Ankit had attempted suicide earlier also. His mother is a school teacher and father is a retired bank officer.
