HARIPUR: A man reportedly committed suicide in a remote village of Sera-e-Nehmat Khan union council on Thursday. Shahid, 32, also had polio and walked with the help of crutches. Saddar police quoted Abdul Razzaq, Shahid’s father, as saying for the last few days, Shahid had been acting aloof and avoiding social interaction with family members and friends. On Wednesday afternoon, he went out but did not return. After some time in the evening, locals spotted his body hanging from a tree in the forest near the village. An FIR has been registered and the police is investigating the case.
