Chennai: A 34-year-old government official committed suicide at his residence in Arputham Nagar, West Tambaram, last night.

The police said the victim, Deepak Chakravarty, worked as an assistant section officer in the agriculture department at the Secretariat. He was living with his mother Vanita, wife Sudha (30) and two children, Stalin (7) and Rosy (4).

Yesterday night, Chakravarty locked himself inside the room till 8.30 pm. Raising suspicion, his mother and wife repeatedly knocked the door but he did not respond. So they called their neighbours to break the door and found Chakravarty hanging from the ceiling fan.
