This is absolutely shocking!

This is second case of suicide in Pune [India's IT Hub] by a software engineer. While the reason for the suicide is unknown; people have been talking about the growing frustration among IT engineers.

[Update] as reported by IBN Live:

Sarojkumar Bramhanand Nayar, a 26-year-old engineer working with ACS Ltd, a sub-contract firm of Tech Mahindra, was found hanging on a teakwood tree in a forest near Wakad on Tuesday morning, less than a fortnight after Sandeep Shelke, an employee of city-based IT firm Persistent Systems had jumped off his office building on August 8. Unlike Shelke, Nayar left no suicide note. Nayar hailed from Vishnupura, Baileygram, Ninapuri in Orissa.

β€œThe post mortem report says that Nayak died of strangulation. No other wounds were found on his body. Investigations are on to confirm the cause of his death,” said Police Sub Inspector Pratap Pawar of Hinjewadi police station.

Saroj was not a Tech Mahindra employee but a sub-contract employee working on a Tech M assignment. He was an employee of ACS Ltd

What is happening with the techies in Pune? Are software Engineers under threat of stress related weaknesses?

This is getting serious.
Very sad news πŸ˜” My condolences to his family.

I wonder if it is related to stress again. For now its just speculation, yes?

Can say that as of now. But they say he was strangulated. So possibilities are endless. That reminds me of 'Urban Legend' πŸ˜’
