Hyderabad: Lucky Gupta Agarwal, a 35-year-old techie allegedly committed suicide by inhaling nitrogen gas on Thursday as he was depressed that an app developed by him had failed, police said.

Lucky was found dead by his family members in a room wearing a nose mask-connected to a small nitrogen gas cylinder, at his S R Nagar residence here.

Police said he inhaled the gas as it was a "painless" method to commit suicide.

"He decided to inhale nitrogen gas to end his life as it was a painless method...he also did some research on ways to commit suicide," Deputy Commissioner of Police (West Zone) A Venkateswara Rao said quoting a suicide note purportedly written by Lucky.

"He was under depression as the app which he developed for the past several months did not succeed and he suffered financial loss," the DCP said.

Agarwal had earlier worked as a software professional before quitting his job and had started developing software and mobile applications, police said. His body has been sent for post-mortem and a case has been booked under section 174 of CrPC, Rao said.

Hyderabad, famous as 'Cyberabad' is famous worldwide for IT ventures and startups. Many IT majors too have their headquarters in the city.
