Puttur: Lakshmana (32), son of Monta Mugera from Konadka of Konaje near Uppinangady, was missing since Dec 1.
His wife had delivered their second child, a girl, in the Lady Goschen Hospital in Mangaluru on Nov 26 and they both are still lying in hospital bed, awaiting his arrival to get them discharged.
When a search was made for him, he was found hanging from a tree in a forest near their house on Thursday.
He was reportedly undergoing depression over the past days. By redeeming himself from his worries, now he might have put his wife and children into a worse situation.
The Uppinangady police have registered a case.
