A man committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan at his house in Talwandi Rai village near Raikot on Wednesday afternoon. The police said the victim took the extreme step over the deteriorating financial condition of his family.

The victim has been identified as Jasvir Singh. His sister was married off recently after his father took a loan of `1.5 lakh.

Victim's father Tarlok Singh said Jasvir was depressed over the poor financial condition.

Raikot Sadar station house officer (SHO) Vikramjit Singh said Jasvir's father is a daily wager and is unable to make both ends meet.

The police have filed the proceedings under Section 174 of the CrPC.
