Malappuram: Anguished by the brutal gunning down of a 24-year-old dental student P V Manasa in Kothamangalam, a youth died of suicide in Kerala's Malappuram district.

Changaramkulam native Vineesh, 33, killed himself on Monday allegedly pained by the death of the dental student. A suicide note to the effect was recovered by the police.
