A 50-year-old man from Moga allegedly hanged himself in a hotel room near Clock Tower on Saturday.
The deceased has been identified as Amritpal Singh, a resident of Bukkarwal village in Moga. He was staying at Hotel York since February 19.
Inspector Dharampal, station house officer (SHO), Division Number 1 police station, said on Saturday, when Amritpal did not open the door of his room, the hotel staff sounded the police.
Cops reached the spot and found Amritpal hanging from the ceiling fan. They found a mobile phone on the spot and made some calls to realise that the deceased was a sevadar at Gurdwara Nanaksar Sahib in Jagraon. They also learnt that he was suffering from some illness which could have led him to take the extreme step.
The SHO said they had informed his family and would take further action after recording their statement. The body was sent to civil hospital for autopsy.
