Kottayam: A trader, whose life was in crisis following the Kovid lockdown, committed suicide by writing a note on social media. According to police, Sarin Mohan, 42, of Kanakakunnu Gurudeva Bhavan, a hotel owner in Kurichi, Changanassery, jumped in front of a train and killed himself. He was killed in a Kottayam-Thiruvananthapuram-Chennai superfast collision near Level Cross at around 4.30 am on Tuesday.
In a Facebook post saying that the unscientific lockdown decisions have shattered everything, he also blames the government for his death. The note also requests that he help his wife and two children. Relatives said Sarin had applied for a loan for the hotel but was saddened when he did not get it. A police team led by Chingavanam Station House Officer Inspector TR Jiju reached the spot and shifted the body to the district hospital.
From Sarin Mohan’s post
My hotel was in good condition until 6 months ago. Unscientific lockdown decisions shattered everything. People can be crowded in the beverage, the corona will not come. The corona will be caught if you stand in the queue at the hotel. You can sit close to the bus and catch the corona while staying at the hotel. Let’s stay together in the shopping mall. At weddings, 100 people can stay together, eat together, and not sit in a hotel.
Political parties can hold public meetings and not catch the corona. This is how decisions are made. When everything broke down the lockdown changed everything. Now the threat of private banks. The threat of the Blades. If I work for another 6 years, my responsibilities will not end. Look no further. Try to put an end to the stupid decisions of the government even with my death. Do not ruin the lives of ordinary people.
This government is responsible for my death. I am an example of how an ordinary person can be trapped in debt and ruin his life. I saw people who showed love when it was in my hands and those who accounted for up to a rupee when I was not. Those who have a good mind to help should support my family.
A wife and two children who only know how to love. They need to live longer. The youngest son has autism. He too has the right to live on this earth. The cops who pick up my phone have to give it home, and my daughter has an online class.
NB: The comment that I would have helped if I had known was banned.
