The family members of Swapan Chandra Das fell asleep after dinner on Tuesday night as usual. However, his wife was not at home.
Swapan came to Facebook live from his bedroom at 1:55am, propped himself up on a stool and hung himself from the ceiling using a scarf.
At least 30 to 35 viewers, including neighbour Sharif, saw the scene live at that moment.
On hearing the news, some neighbours rushed to his house and found his hanging body. When his relatives rescued him and took him to Shaheed Ahsanullah Master General Hospital in Tongi, the doctor on duty declared Swapan dead.
The deceased left behind two sons and a daughter along with his wife.
Earlier in the day, he posted several pictures from his Facebook account and wrote in the caption: “Some memorable moments in life. Maybe this is the last upload of my life.”
People in the area are speculating that he may have committed suicide due to a fallout with his business partners.
Pubail police Inspector (Investigation) Shah Alam said the body of the deceased had been sent to Gazipur Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmed Medical College Hospital morgue for an autopsy.
