Wife of the doctor who committed suicide on June 5, was arrested for abetment of suicide by the Lonikand police on Sunday.

Police sources said that Dr Abhaysingh Maruti Mache (34) committed suicide on June 5 and had left a suicide note implicating his wife as the reason behind the drastic step. However, further investigation is underway in the case, said police inspector (PI) Sarjerao Patil of Lonikand police station.

Mache’s wife found him hanging from the ceiling of their house in Wagholi. The doctor is survived by his wife and a three-year-old daughter, said PI Patil. Originally from Ahmednagar, the doctor had moved a few years ago to Wagholi for medical practice, said PI Patil.

The incident is second of its kind in recent months. It can be recalled that the producer of Marathi film Dhol Tashe, Atul Tapkir, had committed suicide by consuming poison in a hotel in Pune after posting a status on his Facebook profile.

In his post, Tapkir cited his wife as the reason behind him taking the drastic step. His wife and two of his brother-in-laws were held responsible and booked for abetment to suicide by the city police. Days before committing suicide, Tapkir’s wife had filed a complaint against her husband and in-laws for harassment.
