A man reportedly killed himself by jumping in front of an oncoming train after he did not receive the job notifications he was waiting for. The incident happened in Khammam town of Telangana, India on Tuesday, Jan. 25.

The deceased, identified as Muthyala Sagar, a 23-years-old college graduate and a police job aspirant, was reportedly left frustrated after being unable to land a job for some years. Sagar, who was preparing for competitive exams for government posts, was reportedly upset after he did not receive the job notifications he was recently expecting. Upset and distressed over this, he jumped in front of a moving train and took his own life on Tuesday, Jan. 25, the Hindu reported.

The Sagar's mutilated body was found on the railway tracks near Mamillagudem, Telangana in the town in the early hours of Tuesday, Jan. 25.

Sagar, a former student of the DRS Degree College in Khammam, has been staying in a rented room for the last three years. While preparing for the civil service exams, Sagar used to take on multiple part-time odd jobs to make ends meet.

On Tuesday, Jan. 25, before killing himself, Sagar reportedly blamed the Chief Minister of the State for his unemployment in a letter, and changed the status on his phone to: “No notifications issued, waiting for job notifications for the last few years,” the New Indian Express reported.

After the officers found his body, the Khammam Government Railway Police (GRP) examined the crime scene and informed Sagar’s parents about the incident.

Sagar's tragic death has triggered widespread protests in the state with activists and politicians blaming the government for its alleged failure to address the prevalent unemployment problem.

Meanwhile, Galla Satyanarayana, District President of the political party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanded $66,799 (50 lakh Indian Rupees) to be handed over to Sagar's family as compensation.

The protestors also staged a demonstration at the District Headquarters Hospital demanding the immediate issue of job notifications and asking the government to provide a job to the man's sister.

Satyanarayana alleged that the government was responsible for Sagar's death, noting that millions of unemployed youth have been left distressed over not receiving job notifications from the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government.
