He said Abu Mohsin Khan lived at an apartment of House No. 25 on Road No. 27 in Dhanmondi. He killed himself, shooting himself in the head with his licensed pistol around 9:45pm.
On information, senior officer from Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Ramana division visited the scene.
Police officials could not immediately say anything about the motive behind the suicide.
Ikram said Mohsin left a suicide note in which he detailed the reasons behind his decision to take his own life.
“He was suffering from cancer. He wrote that he had done some business, but was gravely hit by losses.”
Mohsin also spoke about his painful experience in the video. He said people took Tk 52 million from him on several occasions when he was doing business, but never returned the money.
“Only those who live alone know the pain of living alone. I don’t have any emotion for people now. I’ve been betrayed.”
The Criminal Investigation Department’s forensic team was collecting evidence from the scene.
The body would be sent to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for post-mortem examination.
