Amritsar, November 26

A man committed suicide in Hamidpura village, which falls under the Gharinda police station, here on Friday. The deceased has been identified as Gurpreet Singh (30), a resident of Achintkot village.

Following the statement of deceased’s elder brother, Mangal Singh of Achintkot village, the police have booked the deceased’s wife Karambir Kaur, parents Balwinder Kaur and Mehar Singh. No arrest has been made till now.

The complainant told the police that his brother married Karambir Kaur on April 2, 2021. After 15 days of the marriage, she left him and went to her parents home saying she does not like him. He said she did not return for months. He said three days ago, Gurpreet went Hamidpura village for bringing her back. He said on the same evening, he got a call from Nirmal Singh, who was the middleman in the marriage, that Gurpreet had consumed some poisonous substance at the residence of his in-laws.

Mangal said he, along with other family members, immediately rushed there and found Gurpreet lying outside their residence. He said Gurpreet told him that Karambir and her parents had insulted him. Perturbed over this, he decided to end his life.

He said he was rushed to a private hospital where he succumbed on Wednesday night. The police have registered a case under Sections 306 and 120-B of the IPC against Karambir, Mehar Singh and Balwinder Kaur while no arrest has been made till now. — TNS
