KARACHI: A jobless man committed suicide in Karachi’s Ibrahim Haideri area after his children demanded warm clothes, media reported on Thursday.
Police officials said 35-year-old Mir Hassan was jobless for the past three months. They added the victim was facing financial constraints and was also suffering from depression.
They said on the day of the incident, Hassan’s children demanded of him to buy warm clothes for them. In sheer frustration, he set himself on fire and ended his life.
