The body of a 36-year-old man, who is suspected to have committed suicide, was seized from the cremation ground in Pinjore on Monday as the cops first wanted to conduct a post-mortem examination.


The incident took place in Rampur Jangi village. Shoorvir Dass was reportedly depressed for some months. Police said he had gone for a walk in the morning and then went to his room. When his wife Archana checked on him, she found him hanging from the fan. She started shouting after which other family members gathered. But Dass was already dead.

As the body was taken to the crematorium, police reached there. “We needed to conduct the post-mortem examination. After that we released the body to the family,” said inspector Pawan Kumar.
The cremation would now be held on Tuesday, it is learnt.
