After strangling his wife to death, a 33-year-old Kharar resident committed suicide by jumping in front of a train. He left behind a suicide note, claiming that his wife was having an illicit relationship with one person of her native village.

Kharar SHO Manjit Singh said, the accused Manjit Singh, a resident of Mundi Kharar, on Tuesday strangled his wife Paramjeet Kaur (30) to death. Later in the evening, he jumped to death in front of a train.

Manjit got married to Paramjeet around six years back and their relationship was not cordial. The couple has a six-year-old son, who is staying with his maternal grandfather.

The SHO said before marriage, Manjit had gone to Dubai and was working as a labourer there. He had spent a few months in Dubai even after his marriage and his wife had filed a case in the court, seeking maintenance. Both reached a compromise and started staying in Kharar. Manjit was unemployed and was looking for a job.

The SHO said the couple was staying separately from each other for the past one month. “We have registered a case against Manjit on the complaint of Jaswinder Singh, who is brother of Paramjeet,” the SHO said.

After the postmortem, the police handed over the bodies to the family members.

Suicide note

Manjit had left behind a suicide note that was found pasted on the wall of the room where his wife was staying: “I am fully conscious and have killed my wife as she was having a illicit relationship with a person of her native village. On Tuesday, her paramour had visited her and both had lunch together,” the suicide note read.
