Son commits suicide minutes after watching film




A MOTHER burst into tears as she recalled how she tried to revive her son who had hanged himself from a ceiling fan in their home just minutes after watching a film.

Indian Yamini Jaya told the GDN she had no idea why Sai Tej Modalavalasa, aged 20, took the extreme step in their flat in Gudaibiya on Saturday evening.

He had arrived in Bahrain on August 22 from the family’s home-town in Vishakapatnam, Andhra Pradesh to take up a job, said the 44-year-old domestic worker.

“He did not wish to study further,” she said, adding he was reportedly working with a supermarket.

“Now, I just want to see my son’s face for one last time,” she told the GDN as she waited outside the Salmaniya Medical Complex morgue yesterday.

She had rushed to the morgue on Saturday night but was told to return yesterday as a post-morten had to be conducted.

“Today (Sunday) I was told the post-mortem was over and I waited for almost two hours but I was not allowed to see him.

“I really want to see my son’s face, one last time,” she said as she broke down.

Mr Modalavalasa was the fourth expatriate to take his own life in Bahrain this month, taking the toll of reported suicides among exapts to 28 this year.
