In a moving 8-minute video shot moments before his death, Syed, a techie, pines for his beloved son who was snatched away from him by his wife

This is not a video of a hostage kidnapped by terrorists pleading for help. It is a video of a dying father pining for his son. These are the last few moments of a depressed father who was kept away from his only son. When J C Nagar police broke open the door and found Syed Ahmed Makhdoom’s body, they were surprised to find a death note in video format. Bangalore Mirror which carried the report on Friday ( April 10) managed to access this exclusive video footage which was shot by Syed himself just before he committed suicide. In the video, he states the reasons for ending his precious life.

Bangalore Mirror managed to access this exclusive video footage which was shot by Syed himself just before he committed suicide


“I am ending my life today as nobody understood my attachment and feelings towards my son. Anyone else committing the terrible act of keeping a dad away from his beloved son should think twice.”

Syed Ahmed Makhdoom who died last Thursday said that he shot the video a few minutes before he died. It’s a 8-minute long video footage shot on his mobile. He speaks about his difficulties and the pain faced by him, the harassment he underwent thanks to his wife and her parents and finally about his only son for whose sake he opts to die.

He starts by saying, “Today I am going to end my life. I am ending my life after being betrayed by my separated wife.”

“Muskhan Sehr (32) (his separated wife) harassed me. They blackmailed me emotionally. My son Riyan means the world to me. I digested all the harassment meted out to me because I did not want my wife to harass my son. She prevented me from meeting my son. I haven’t seen my son from the past one and half years.

“She and her parents asked me to furnish Rs 10 lakh as early as possible. But at that time, I was not in a position to produce the sum. Since I was attached to my son, they prevented me from meeting my son. My wife then made false allegations against me and filed a complaint in the police station under section 498 A. The police without trying to ascertain the truth took me away to the police station. On that day, I died literally. Ever since then I was dying day in and day out for two reasons. One, I was kept away from my son and two, I was harassed by my wife.

“I was suffering both mentally and physically. It became routine for me to beg for my son. But no one understood me. Finally, I fell at her feet and begged to see my son. But to no avail. I then approached the courts. But they quite simply dragged the case. Everything was mechanical there.

“Kumar Jagirdar is the only man who understood my plight and I begged him to get me justice. He is the only one who understood my feelings. I wasn’t even allowed to see my son on his birthday. I haven’t seen my cute daughter even once. I have tried to be strong for the sake of my son but I cannot continue leading this meaningless life. I reasoned with my wife that our children should not become scapegoats but she has no feelings whatsoever. She is not fit to be a mother.

“So I am ending my earthly journey.


“I beg my mom, dad and all my well wishers to forgive me. I am feeling guilty. If possible, look after my kids well. A dying man doesn’t lie. Please punish my wife and her parents and those responsible for my death.

“Anyone who tries to split father and son in future should think about my struggle.

“I am going away leaving behind my son and daughter. Please respect my death.”

In these 8 minutes, Syed cries throughout.

Kumar Jagirdar, president of CRISP, who happens to be mentioned by Syed, said “ We will fight for justice”.

Police investigating the incident say Syed Ahmed Makhdoom (38), a techie and resident of Bore Bank Road in Benson Town, hanged himself from a ceiling fan in his secondfloor flat.

The incident came to light on Thursday when the landlord got suspicious on seeing Syed’s car parked outside for a few days. Not getting any response from Syed’s mobile, he went to the second floor flat and was hit by a foul smell emanating from within. The police arrived to find Syed hanging from the ceiling fan. The police feel he committed suicide on Sunday.

Syed joined a software company in Bangalore in 2000 and later married Muskhan Sehr, a native of Mysore and an HR manager in the apparel company Jockey. They had a boy in 2005 and a girl in 2008. Soon after their daughter was born, the couple parted ways.

Their divorce and child custody cases are pending in a city family court.


In his blog, Syed describes himself thus, “I am a Canadian national holding a Canadian passport and a person of Indian origin holding a PIO card, and am settled in Bangalore since March 2002 with a valid residence permit and registration. My purpose in life is to make my son a good person.”
