An Indian man has allegedly killed himself a month after he viciously attacked a girl he was courting with a knife for rejecting his proposal. The incident happened in Hyderabad, India on Tuesday, Nov. 30.

The accused, identified as B Prem Singh, 21, was reportedly infatuated with his assault victim, a student of architecture. However, when the girl rejected his proposal, Singh allegedly barged into her house and attacked her with a knife on Oct. 27.

The assailant managed to slit the victim's arms and wrist with a knife before she could shout for help. Her neighbors eventually heard the signs of a commotion, rushed to the scene, and restrained the unstable Singh. He was subsequently arrested by the police after the violent incident.

The civilians handed Singh over to the police and a case of attempted murder was registered against him under section 307 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The girl rejected Singh's claims that she was in a relationship with her attacker. She said that she had rejected his proposal and had cut all contact with him, speculating that this might have provoked him to assault her.

Following the incident, Singh reportedly got out on bail and had been residing at his house in Jeedimetla.

A month after the confrontation, however, Singh, who was still upset over the rejection, allegedly killed himself by hanging a noose from a ceiling fan, the Siasat Daily reported. On Tuesday, Nov. 30, Singh's family members forced opened the door to his room and found him hanging limp from a fan.

“Singh had been released on bail and was residing at his house in Jeedimetla, where the incident took place,” the police said.
