A 26-year-old man shot himself on Saturday night following an alleged domestic tiff with his second wife. Ali Khan alias Sunny, went to the terrace of his Nalasopara building and shot himself in the stomach using an unlicensed pistol. Though the neighbours rushed Khan to the nearby hospital, he succumbed to the gunshot wound in the night.

Inspector Prakash Birajdar from Tulinj police station said an accidental death report (ADR) has been registered and they are questioning his wife to ascertain what prompted Khan to take the drastic step following a petty domestic quarrel.

“He [Khan] used an unlicenced firearm to commit suicide. We are now probing to find out the source of his purchase. He was a labour contractor-cum-supervisor. While his first wife lives in Borivli, he stayed with the second one in Nalasopara. He has four children,” Birajdar said.
