Gulzari Lal, a resident of Indira Colony, committed suicide by hanging with an iron rod in his truck here on Saturday. The police have booked the owner of the truck, Nirmal Kumar of Paris Town on Batala road, on the charge of abetting suicide following a complaint by deceased’s wife Kavita.

She stated to the Mohkampura police that her husband used to work as a driver at transport truck owned by Nirmal Kumar. She said her husband borrowed Rs50,000 in October 2019 from him for daughter’s marriage. She said the accused was not giving him salary for the past some time and he was perturbed over it. She said Gulzari Lal told her about this. She said when he demanded the same from his owner, he allegedly insulted him. On Saturday, his body was found hanging with an iron grill of the truck.

The police have registered a case under Section 306 of the IPC against Nirmal Kumar in this regard. Further investigation was on, while the accused is on the run.
