28 year old, Konica Layak, who was a national-level shooter rose to fame after the actor and humanitarian Sonu Sood gifted her a rifle for her practice earlier this year. Konica, who passed away today has left behind a suicide note stating that she has failed to fulfill the dreams of her parents and is thus taking this drastic step by putting an end to her life. Talking about what led the talented athlete to take this step, reports talk about a setback faced by Konica earlier in October.

This statement was given to a leading media portal by Konica’s coach Joydeep Karmakar who is also a former Olympian and a national award winner. Konica’s coach, Joydeep revealed that the young athlete is the fourth shooter in the country to pass away by committing suicide this year. He revealed that earlier this year, three more athletes in Punjab have committed suicide by shooting themselves with their own firearms since September. He also stated that this is certainly a bad time for the country’s sports fraternity and that psychologists should shed some light on this topic.
Sonu Sood, who had gifted a rifle to Konica took to his Instagram stories to offer his condolences to the late athlete.
Have a look at Sonu Sood’s tweet here:
The 28-year-old late Konica had joined Karmakar’s training institute in Kolkata in July this year as there are inadequate training facilities in Jharkhand. Konica used to stay with other girls in a hostel in Bally, Kolkata, and would also visit her family occasionally.
May Konica’s soul Rest in peace. We offer hearty condolences to the late athlete.
