The body of a 25-year-old software engineer from Vijayawada who had gone missing after sending 'suicidal' messages to his family, was found in the Prakasam barrage on Monday evening.

According to the Times of India, police has confirmed that Govind Nagasai, a 25-year-old techie had killed himself. However, the reason is yet to be ascertained.

Govind's brother, Santosh Kumar, had earlier told TNM that he did not see any depression symptoms.

The resident of Vijayawada was working for Canadian Global Information Technology (CGIT) in Gachibowli in Hyderabad.

One month ago, he moved back to his native place in Vijayawada and had been working from home in Prasadampadu .

Nagasai had gone missing on Saturday night, after sending a WhatsApp message to his brother saying that he will be ending his life by jumping into the Krishna river.

“Around 8 in the evening, I got a message from Govind through WhatsApp where he sent me a map location saying he is jumping into Krishna river from Prakasam Barrage and I must collect his body from there. He also asked me to collect his bike from Durga Ghat in the city," Santosh had told TNM.

On Sunday, the police found out that Govind’s Facebook account had been active, with messages being sent from it. His mobile phone was said to be on roaming.

“Neither was he the type of a person to commit suicide nor was he mentally unstable. Everything was fine till we last saw him. We suspect that there could be something wrong at his workplace as he barely spoke about it,” Nagasai's father Govindu Nageswara Rao told TOI.
