Bangalore : A single parent, who had been fighting for custody of his child, committed suicide on Thursday in JC Nagar. He was frustrated at not being able to see his child regularly.

Syed Makhdoom, a software engineer with a multi-national company, was a Canadian national but had settled in Bangalore. He got married six years ago and has a five-year-old son.

He got divorced two-and-half years ago, and since then had been fighting for visitation rights and custody of his child. Before committing suicide at his house in Benson Town, he left a note for his son saying he will miss him, but couldn’t continue living without him.

President of Children’s Rights Initiative For Shared Parenting (Crisp) Kumar V Jahgirdar said Makhdoom was a Crisp member for a long time. “He was fighting for custody of the child and visitation rights. His former wife would not let him meet their son,” he added.

JC Nagar police confirmed the suicide and said his family members were coming from Ahmedabad to receive the body.
