A businessman and a woman, who was married only 10 days ago, committed suicide here in separate incidents on Thursday morning.

Daman Jain, 31, running a business of selling dry fruits, committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan of a room at his house in Mandi Fentonganj near the railway station here on Thursday morning.

The businessman has blamed one Ramesh Chander Gupta in the suicide for his taking the extreme step. However, his family also accused some cops of pressuring him on a false complaint on the issue of vacating some shops supervised by Jain’s father Deepak Jain.

A resident of Mandi Road, the deceased had left for a morning walk and, when he did not return for long, his family members searched for him and when they checked in his room, he was found hanging from the fan.

As per the suicide note, Jain first thought of committing suicide inside the factory, but he found that labourers had got up there. So, he came to the room.

The family said Daman had complained against Gupta many a time, but the police did not heed him. “Had they taken action against Gupta, my son would have been alive,” said his father.

Earlier, Daman and Ramesh were business partners but, later on, Daman had started his own business. On the basis of the suicide note, the police have registered first information report (FIR) against Gupta and another person Neetu under Section 306 (abetment to suicide) of IIPC. 21-YEAR-OLD WOMAN ENDS LIFE AT KHURLA KINGRA

In the other incident, 21-yearold Lakshmi, a resident of Khurla Kingra, who was married 10 days ago, committed suicide on Thursday morning by hanging herself from a column beam of the room where she was residing with her husband Karan, 25. The couple were originally from Nepal, and Karan had brought her only six days ago after marriage in Nepal.

She was alone at home when she committed suicide. Her neighbour Pushpa was first to see the body hanging when she opened the room’s door. She informed other residents and they called the victim’s husband, who works as a cook in a local Dhaba near the PPR Mall.

After getting information about the incident, cops from police station-7 rushed to the site. No suicide note was recovered from the house. It was the second marriage of Karan. Pushpa said that she had planned to visit a religious place in the locality with Lakshmi for which she had come to the victim’s house.

Her husband told the police that he did not know the reason behind the extreme step taken by Lakshmi. Station house officer (SHO) Navdeep Singh said that a case under Section 174 of the CrPC has been registered and he ruled out any foul play behind the incident.
