Ludhiana, September 23

A man committed suicide due to the alleged harassment by his wife. The police registered an abetment to suicide case against the wife.

The accused has been identified as Dimpy, resident of SBS Nagar.

Complainant Reena Rani told the police that her brother Tinku Raja got married to Dimpy about four months back and immediately after marriage, Dimpy started torturing Tinku on one pretext or other.

“Due to daily issues at home, Dimpy had left home and started living at her parents place in SBS Nagar. She had also lodged a complaint of dowry harassment at Women Cell in SBS Nagar against my brother. When my brother came to know about the complaint he went into depression,” the complainant said.

The Women Cell had called her brother and asked him to appear for hearing on September 22. Her brother was upset as he thought that the police would arrest him if he went there.

On September 22 morning, she got to know that her brother had committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling fan at his residence.

Investigation officer ASI Harcharan Singh said after registering a case under Section 306 (abetment to suicide) of the IPC against Dimpy, raids are being conducted to nab her.
