Surya Enclave police have arrested Raj Kumar alias Raja, a resident of Suchhi Pind after a 40-year-old woman named him and his wife in a note before committing suicide on late Tuesday night.

A case under sections 306 (abetment to suicide) was registered Raja and his wife Pooja taking cognizance of the note which said that the couple were blackmailing the victim by threatening to upload her pictures on website. Pooja is yet to be arrested.

The police said that they have got a day's remand of Raja and will interrogate him about the pictures that the deceased had mentioned in the note.

Victim's husband Avinash Chander in his complaint to the police said that his wife had been harassed by Raja and his wife Pooja for many years on the pretext of uploading her pictures on the internet.

Chander said that his daughter Madhavi who was in the house on Tuesday evening, told him that Raja came to house and physically assaulted the victim when she refused to give Raja the LCD TV and mobile he was demanding.

He said that Raja told the victim that he would upload her pictures on a website and will defame her publicly.

After that the victim consumed an unknown poisonous substance and later succumbed at the civil hospital.
