Ludhiana, May 2
A man committed suicide by hanging himself at his house in Gurmel Park here. He took the extreme step due to alleged harassment by his wife.
The deceased has identified as Bhushan Jagra (27), alias Golu.
Deceased’s mother Neelam told the police that his son got married to Monica of Mayapuri, here, in 2016. After marriage, they had a daughter who was three-year-old now.
The complainant said a few months after marriage, her daughter-in-law started torturing her son due to minor reasons and many a times, compromise was reached between them in the presence of relatives but to no avail.
Recently her daughter-in-law along with her granddaughter left their home and started living at her parents’ house in Mayapuri. She wanted to take divorce from her son but he was not in favour of the same.
On April 30, in the presence of some relatives, her daughter-in-law again demanded divorce and the next meeting to finalise divorce proceedings was scheduled on May 3.
“Since my son was not in favour of divorce, he went into depression. On May 1, he committed suicide in his room. When I went to see my son I was shocked to see his hanging body,” the complainant alleged.
Assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Gurmeet Singh said a case of abetment to suicide had been registered against his wife and raids were on to nab her.
