A 25-year-old former footballer committed suicide by jumping from the ninth floor of his residential building situated at Sohna road at around 4 pm on Monday. The youngster was suffering from depression which could have been the reason behind taking the extreme step.
The victim has been identified as Hunair whose father Riaz Rahmatullah had a business in property. He was a resident of Nirvana Country and was brought up in the United Kingdom where he got interested in football and got some part of his initial training there.
The victim has also left behind a suicide note which praises his younger brother, Adnan who is also a football player. In his suicide note, Hunair has said that may God give all blessings to his younger brother and may he achieve everything what he could not achieve as a sportsperson.
A team of police officials reached the spot after they were called in by the society's guards. Eyewitnesses said that the victim died on the spot immediately after hitting the ground.
Police officials said that both these brothers were from a very well to do family and Hunair was already undergoing treatment for stress and depression. "We believe that as he was not able to play football for a long time, he felt stress due to it and went into depression. We are questioning the family members," said Yashwant, SHO Sadar Police station.
Police officials said that Hunair used to play for the erstwhile Mahindra United Club in Mumbai after which he could not play. His younger brother too used to play for clubs in Haryana and Delhi and both were well educated. The post mortem of the body will be done on Tuesday after which the body will be handed over to the family.
