BizAsia Correspondent



Tributes have been pouring in today after it was revealed that a 22-year-old Sikh man passed away after a battle with depression.

Amandeep Singh, who was known as “Deepy” on Instagram, died after falling from Woodfield Lane Car Park, Leeds city centre. The news was confirmed by Police earlier today.

There was a huge search for Singh since he shared a post on Instagram about his mental health. He was reported missing to police on Thursday night.

His final post on social media read, “My names Deep some of you know me as Deep and some of you as Mr Singh. Some of you knew me on a friend level and some of you knew exactly on a family level. It’s me the guy who’s always active at the meets, always ready to give WYP the SMOKE anything cars I’m on it. If you knew me you knew that I never wanted anything but the best for my people if you looked after me I looked after you! I was the guy you could ring at 3am and I’d back your beef or I was the guy you could call at 3am and I’ll wipe your tears. A friend who would pay just to have your company there a person who would never take you for granted and would always put you before myself in any situation. Today I lost my battle with depression… if you’re ready this now you’re probably thinking Deep?Depressed never? It’s been something I’ve been battling over the last few years with loads of back and fourth some days were good some days I nearly did it. I tried everything please don’t think that you didn’t help me every single one of you that I ever spoke to or that I ever shared memories with has helped me a great deal like an unimaginable amount! I can’t thank you all enough that shared memories please hold on to them and treasure them because I sure know that I will!
Please if you’re going through something similar to what I was please speak to someone I cannot stress enough to talk to someone! I tried and I couldn’t but maybe your story is different to mine but it does matter as much as mine! No matter how big or small we all go through shit I can’t stress enough to talk to someone! The suicide number is 116123. My time has come to an end it was short but it was most certainly fun hopefully those that share memories with me can hold on to them for a long time I’ll hold on to them forever! It wasn’t a motoring accident it was a choice a choice that I made. And for whoever finds my phones the password is 257007 my phone is full of nothing but memories so to the family or friend that finds it please hold on to that phone! One last time it was great for those of you that I ran into in my short time please don’t cry because I’m gone but remember I was smiling!
