HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): A 24-year-old man has committed suicide by shooting himself in the head after saying “sorry” to friends on Facebook in western Herat province, an official said on Sunday.

Rashid Aria uploaded his last video on his Facebook account, saying “sorry” to all friends and relatives for taking the extreme step. Aria said he was committing suicide after losing hope in life.

He also said in his video that he had travelled to many countries but it had no positive impact on life.

Herat civil hospital officials said they received the body of Rashid Aria with a bullet hole in his head.

Mohammad Rafiq Sherzai, the hospital’s spokesman, said the young man had been suffering from mental illness.

He used his own pistol to take his life in Bakarabad area of Herat city. The body would be released to his family after the investigation, Sherzai said
