He was struggling to return some money he borrowed from his co-worker
A 22-year-old man live-streamed his suicide on Friday in the eastern district of Brahmanbaria.
The deceased has been identified as Parvez, a resident of Khaiyasar village in the Sadar upazila.
According to locals, Parvez worked as a plumber with a man named Jibon Miah.
Parvez was struggling to return some money he borrowed on interest from Jibon. As a result, Jibon and some of his associates assaulted Parvez on Thursday night.
Out of angst and humiliation over the incident, Parvez streamed his suicide on Friday afternoon. Later he was taken to the hospital where the duty doctor declared him dead.
Following the incident, Jibon went into hiding.
Brahmanbaria Sadar Model police station Officer in-Charge (OC) Abdur Rahim said the autopsy of the youth was completed. A case is also being prepared.
“We are trying to find the accused Jibon. The whole incident will be investigated and necessary legal actions will be taken,” he added.
