A labourer ended his life by hanging himself from a tree at a vacant plot in Haibowal on the intervening night of Wednesday and Thursday.

Sub-inspector Mohan Lal, station house officer (SHO) at Haibowal police station, said the man was living at his in-laws’ house with his wife.

Police said he had a strained relationship with his wife and they indulged in a spat on Wednesday, after which he left the house.
