Indian commits suicide after Argentina’s football defeat

Por Olivia Rosario Rodríguez

It is necessary to start this news saying that all extremes are bad and, without a doubt, the young Indian Dinu Alex reached one of the stops. The boy threw himself into a river, after leaving a suicide note in his house, in which he explained that for him in the world there was nothing left, because his 'god of football', as he considered Leonel Messi, had disappointed him.

Dinu Alex, 30 years old, was based in the village of Arumanoor in the district of Kottayam and was engaged in accounting. His body was found by police officers two days after killing himself in a river in the state of Kerala, in southwestern India. The young man disappeared from his home after the defeat of Argentina against Croatia in the 2018 Soccer World Cup Russia.

After the 0-3 defeat, which included a bad performance by Messi, Dinu cried inconsolably and then turned off his cell phone. The young man was waiting for Argentina, which came to draw with the debutant Iceland in a poor game, to obtain a categorical victory against Croatia.

According to people who knew him, the young man left his residence on Friday morning, visibly distressed. Initially, his family believed that it was a joke, but they became worried as soon as they lost contact and later found their shoes on the banks of the Meenchal River, in the southwest of the country.

Locating the body was a difficult task due to the intense rains that hit the place. The police had to use trained dogs and it took two days to find the body. After performing an autopsy, it was affirmed that it is a suicide.

Although Kerala is one of the regions with the greatest passion for football in all of India, and it is usual for people to adopt fanatical positions in support of different teams, the loss of Dinu is very unfortunate. According to his relatives, Dinu was a very introverted person, had few friends and lived for his passion for football and the Argentine player Lionel Messi, whom he considered his life and hoped to see lifting the World Cup.

Other actions, in spite of being exaggerated, did not reach the end of the young Indian's life. In Kottayam also numerous businesses of the dawn closed on Friday after the defeat. On the other hand, Indian fans in Brazil violently celebrated the fall of their rival on Thursday, so the police had to intervene.
