Aligarh, October 23

A CISF jawan attempted suicide after allegedly poisoning his wife to death on Tuesday in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh district.

Ajit is battling for life in an Aligarh hospital.

The incident came to light when Ajit, who is posted at Kasimpur powerhouse here, did not report for work on Tuesday.

Another CISF jawan went to his house to check on him, but when he did not get any response from inside the house, he alerted the police.

Ajit, 32, was found in a critical condition, while his wife Julie, 30, was found dead when the police broke open the door of their house.

Preliminary investigations have revealed that Ajit, who hails from Patna, had been undergoing treatment for depression for the past two years. He was suspicious about his wife’s relations with someone.

In his statement to police, Ajit said he had given sulphos tablets to his wife and consumed the same. He further admitted that he had locked the door of his house from inside and thrown away the keys. The couple has a two-year-old son.

Circle officer Anil Samaniya said the body of the woman had been sent for postmortem and the family of the couple informed.

He said no FIR had been registered so far. IANS
