Former airport contractor commits suicide in Kerala

TPURAM: A former contractor, who was among those questioned by police in connection with the detection of explosive material on a Kingfisher aircraft last month allegedly committed suicide by hanging at his residence at Valiyathara near here.

The body of Sunil Lawrence (25), was found hanging at his residence Friday morning, they said.

He was employed by the same company of which a staffer, Rajasekharan Nair, was arrested and remanded on March 28 in connection with the detection of the crude bomb on Kingfisher flight. The explosive material was found in the cargo hold of the aircraft, which arrived here from Bangalore on March 21.

A suicide note purportedly written by him congratulated police for the investigation into the crude bomb issue and said he was upset over police questioning on innocent people, police said.
