A 30 year old man committed ritual suicide in his room in Thailand .
The Thai police speculated he did it because he had been robbed ,but the motive is not known.
Ritual suicide is an ancient Japanese tradition .It is called hara kiri or seppuku .
It was a ritual used by the royal and samurai classes ,throughout the feudal years of Japan . It has long since been abandoned .
