Sensing danger, the 26-year-old who is reported to be in the habit of assaulting the deceased attempted to take his own life after the crime by slitting his throat and stabbing himself in the stomach twice but did not die.

He then hanged himself twice but according to some residents, the ceiling of his room collapsed.

It is expected that he will be handed over to the police after his treatment to help in their investigation.
