A city-based builder allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself, apparently because he was fed up with government’s regulations and problems being faced by realty developers, police said.

Parmar fired a bullet from his revolver on his head following which he collapsed. He was rushed to a hospital where he was declared brought dead, Police PRO Gajanan Kabdule said.
According to police, a tablet PC has been recovered from Parmar’s office in which he has listed reasons for taking the extreme step.
In a note on the PC, the 48-year-old builder has cited reasons like government’s numerous regulations for housing sector and problems being faced by realty developers, among others, for ending his life, police said.
