JAIPUR: A 40-year-old YouTuber with more than 3 lakh followers committed suicide by pouring petrol on his body and setting himself on fire on police station premises in the Kardhani area of Jaipur. Before ending his life, he shot a video addressing his son. He blamed his family members and cops for his decision to end his life.
In the video, the deceased Vikas Sharma asked his son Deva to upload it to his YouTube channel – Farming Hindi Advice.
Vikas Sharma made a video while sitting in the car. He said in the video, “Deva son, I will do it.” He continued by stating, “One thing is like this: Hariram Sharma, Puran Mal, Kanaram, Jagdish Prasad, Ramprakash, Puran Mal’s two children Nitesh and Ankur, Kanaram’s child Murari, Mukesh, Babu, my two sisters, their husbands, and my three uncles, Kardhani SHO, and ACP are responsible for my death.”
He added, “They took possession of the house even after the stay. Son, I wanted to do a lot for you. Please upload this video on YouTube on Farming Hindi Advice. Son, I am committing suicide. All these people are responsible for my death.”
The deceased, Vikas Sharma (40), was a farmer and ran a YouTube channel called Farming Hindi Advice. He stated that his family members evicted him from his property. Vikas had a dispute with his uncles, and he obtained a stay from the court regarding the property on Thursday. He went to Jhotwara ACP to seek help and was sent to Kardhani SHO. Vikas asked his uncle to vacate the property, and the SHO restrained both parties.
Later that evening, Vikas returned to the police station by car and set himself on fire as soon as he entered the premises. He was admitted to SMS Hospital but died during treatment. In a video made prior to his suicide, Vikas held his family members, Kardhani SHO, and ACP responsible for his death.
According to a police officer, Vikas did not live in his own house in the Kardhani area, as his uncle had set up a tractor-trolley there. He had been fighting with his family members for 15 years and had filed many cases. Two police constables sustained burn injuries while trying to save Vikas.
