The opportunity came after 12 years to win the World Cup. A chance came to avenge that nightmarish night 20 years ago. How much excitement, how much emotion-anxiety there was around the final match. But this time the dream is broken! Azira brought back the memory of that night 20 years ago in the Cricket World Cup final at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Gujarat on Sunday. The young man could not accept the loss of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the final. He committed suicide by hanging himself after returning home after the match. The incident took place in Bankura’s Beliatore on Sunday night.
According to local sources, Rahul Lohar, a resident of Beliatore, is known as an avid cricket lover. On Sunday, Rahul was watching the game with his friends by installing a projector on the ground of the cinema hall near his home. India was devastated to lose the final. He went straight home from the field. After that, his body was found hanging around 11 pm. According to family sources, Rahul’s brother returned home and found his grandfather’s body hanging from asbestos rice. Rahul was rushed to Beliatora hospital where the doctors declared him dead.
Family members said that Rahul is a cricket lover since childhood. He was cheering for Kohli from the first match of the World Cup. The deceased’s son-in-law Uttam Shur said, “He could not accept India’s loss in any way. India’s losses were almost ripe, and were becoming depressing. We think that’s why he committed suicide.
According to police sources, the police sent the body to Bankura Sammilani Medical College for post-mortem on Monday morning. The police are looking into whether there is any other reason behind this suicide, whether it is emotional exhaustion due to India’s defeat.
An old man died after falling ill after watching the India match in Murshidabad too on Sunday. Sixty-year-old Sukumar Banerjee was watching the India-Australia final match with his family at his home in Beldanga. He fell ill while watching the game and died. According to family sources, the old man started sweating after Indian captain Rohit Sharma was dismissed. After that he was getting very restless as one wicket after another fell. As soon as Virat got out, he got up and went to the roof. He fell ill there. He was first taken to Beldanga Block Primary Health Centre. Sukumar died there during treatment.
