Kam, who is from Manipur's Churchandpur district, was declared dead by doctors at the nearby hospital he was taken to.

A official said that it prima facie it seems to be a case of suicide but they were looking at all angles to the case.

"We don't know what could be the reason that led him to take such an extreme step, but we suspected that it could be a family problem," the official said.
