A 40-year-old construction labourer committed suicide on Wednesday after his wife refused to return from her parents' home.
The victim, Dharminder Singh of Prem Nagar, hung himself from the ceiling of his house. Police recovered a suicide note from his pocket, in which he blamed his wife and father-in-law for his death.
The DSP said, “The victim’s wife had gone to her parents' home in Chour Sidhwan over a month ago and was refusing to return. Dharminder was finding it difficult to manage home and work and had gone into depression.”
Police have registered a case under Section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code against Dharminder’s wife and father-in-law.
