Amritsar, August 2

Maqboolpura police on Sunday booked a woman on the charge of abetment to suicide after a man ended his life by consuming poison. The victim, alleged to be in his early forties, has been identified as Mohan Singh.

Following the statement of his wife Jyoti Devi, the police have booked a woman, Sonia, a resident of Rajinder Nagar locality. No arrest has been made so far and investigation is in progress, said the police.

Investigating officer ASI Kulwinder Singh said Jyoti Devi told the police that she was married to Mohan Singh around 20 years ago. She alleged that the accused (Sonia) used to harass her husband. On Saturday evening, the accused called her son from the mobile of her husband that Mohan Singh had consumed some poisonous substance and was admitted to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital.

The complainant said she along with her son immediately rushed to hospital where he died. She alleged that the accused used to blackmail her husband and therefore he ended his life.

The ASI said a case under Section 306 of the IPC had been registered and raids were on to nab Sonia. He said her arrest would clear the case as why she used to harass and blackmail the victim.
