A youth, who was romancing a girl for six months over the phone, killed himself after his first date with her turned out to be a huge disappointment.
The 24-year-old, C Natarajan, threw himself before a speeding train near Podanur station and committed suicide on Tuesday. His body was kept at the government general hospital mortuary for two days as it could not be identified. "On Thursday, his father saw the body and he confirmed that the deceased was his son" said Podanur railway police sub-inspector G Anandhanayagi.
During the interrogation, his father revealed that he was not aware of his son's phone romance.
Just before he flung himself on the tracks, Natarajan wrote a note in his diary asking his friends not to inform the girl about his suicide. A marketing executive, Natarajan received a wrong call from a girl about six months ago. But he wanted to speak with her again and began a telephonic romance.
Later, they decided to get married and planned to meet before fixing the wedding date. However, their first date was disastrous as Natarajan was expecting a beautiful girl, but instead she was homely. After the meeting, he received several calls from the girl asking him to set the wedding date. But Natarajan no longer wished to marry her. As the girl put pressure on him, he thought suicide was the only way out.
