New Delhi: In yet another tragic incident, a second-year degree student, P Akhil, allegedly addicted to the PUBG game, died by suicide in Yellareddyguda, Punjagutta. The distressing event came to light on Saturday.

Akhil used to live with his mother, S Jaya, since his father's demise five years ago. On Wednesday evening, Akhil informed his mother, who was at her work, that he was going to meet a friend in the Srinagar colony and would return later. However, around 8 pm, he sent a text message to his mother saying, "Bye Mummy Love You Jagaratha."

Terrified by the message, Jaya rushed back home to find the main door latched from inside. With the help of neighbours, they broke open the door and found Akhil hanging from the ceiling fan.

Speaking to reporters, Punjagutta sub-inspector S Upendrababu said that Akhil was rushed to a private hospital but unfortunately succumbed to his injuries during treatment later that night.
