A 19-year-old youth shot himself at his house at Raghavendranagar in the city, on Thursday.
The deceased is identified as Bhuvan, a student of NIE College on Manandavadi Road, here. It is learnt that Bhuvan shot himself with a service revolver of his father who was an ex-serviceman. It is alleged that on Wednesday night he had a long conversation over phone with someone, which could have led him to take this extreme step.
Police sources said that Bhuvan shot himself on Thursday morning around 5:30 am at his residence when his parents were asleep. Nazarbad Police officers rushed visited the spot. The body has been sent for postmortem.
A case has been registered at Nazarbad Police Station. Investigations are on.
