Udupi: In an unfortunate incident, a person who was frustrated by chronic health problems, chose to end his life. The incident happened at Uchila near Kaup.
Jaggu Mendon (68), native of Uchila Bada village near Padubidri killed himself. Mendon had initially suffered from chest and back pain about five years back. The pain was so severe that he had to stop working as fisherman since then.
His wife did not find him at home. After searching for long, she found that he had hanged himself from a jack fruit tree standing by the side of the family well in the courtyard. The family members suspect that Mendon would have taken this extreme step, having been unable to cope with his worsening health condition.
