Official sources told a local news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that the youth (name withheld) from Sanigam village of Kulgam appeared near Aharbal waterfall this afternoon and in the blink of a moment jumped into it.

“Rescuers immediately swung into the action but couldn’t save his life,” they said.

Notably, suicide cases have seen a surge in the Kashmir valley in recent months, especially during the second wave of COVID-19, while experts list economic distress, drug abuse and frequent domestic violence as the main reason for the rise in suicide cases—(KNO)
