A 22-year-old resident of the Agra district committed suicide as he was heartbroken over his girlfriend's engagement to someone else. To make matters worse, the man livestreamed his suicide on Facebook.

Twenty-two-year old Shyam Sikarwar alias Raj went to a temple in the Raybha village in the Agra district and hung himself in the premises of the temple early on Saturday morning.

He livestreamed the act as many of his friends watched him hang himself on video. In the four-minute-long video uploaded to Facebook, Shyam Sikarwar told the police to not hold anyone responsible for his death. He also pleaded with his family members to upload photos of his body online.

In addition to the video appeal, Sikarwar also wrote a four-page long suicide note, apologising to his family and requesting them to donate his organs.

"I miss her and can't live without her. I can't bear the fact that she is getting married to someone else. The stress of losing her has affected me so much that I lost my job," Sikarwar wrote in his suicide note. He had lost his job in a Gurgaon-based factory.

Police officers told media that Sikarwar's body was found hanging in the temple by locals.

The police also found that Sikarwar was unemployed and in depression as the girl he loved was marrying someone else.

At the time of filing this copy, the video of the suicide had been taken down and Sikarwar's Facebook profile had been deactivated.
