On the day when married women in some parts of the country observed Karva Chauth for the longevity of their husbands, a 36-year-old man allegedly ended his life and blamed his wife for his extreme step. The incident was reported to the police through a PCR call in the early hours on Saturday.

The deceased, Bhaskar Sharma — owner of an IT solution company — committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan at his office in south Delhi’s Amar Colony. A four-page-long suicide note recovered from his possession revealed that he was tormented by the behaviour and attitude of his wife against him and his parents.

Quoting the suicide note, a senior police officer said, “Sharma was upset over his strained married life. In the note he has written that he was unhappy with his wife Renu Sharma as she often abused him and his parents. Moreover, his in-laws were also threatening him to frame him and his parents in false cases of dowry.” Sharma lived with his wife, a seven-year-old son and parents in Jankipuri locality in west Delhi’s Uttam Nagar.

Sharma’s family members had contacted his business partner Tyagi the previous night when he did not return home and was neither responding to their phone calls.

“Tyagi asked a person who lives on the first floor of his office building to check if Sharma was in office.

The person went to see him and found the room bolted from inside and lights on. Tyagi was informed about it who in turn informed police and Sharma’s family members,” the officer added.

A police team reached the spot, broke open the door and found Sharma hanging. He was first rushed to a nearby private hospital and later to AIIMS where the doctors pronounced him brought dead.
