A 25-year-old man committed suicide at the same spot in his house, where he had found his 22-year-old wife hanging 15 days ago at Shivaji Nagar. He hanged himself with his dead wife’s dupatta and minutes before killing himself, the man recorded a video, pleading the police to help him get justice for his wife.
“In My dreams, my wife has been telling me to get her killers arrested. Even I am being harassed by the her blackmailers. I can’t tolerate this and am ending my life,” Noor Mohammed Idris said in the video recorded on his mobile phone.
According to the police, Idris had been married to Sakina for six years and had two children. The couple stayed in a chawl at Baiganwadi. Idrisi worked in a nearby shoe making factory.
On September 15, Idris was approached by his wife’s former boyfriend who showed him her lewd pictures and a few intimate videos, said an officer. It led to an altercation between Sakina and Idris. She told him that she had left Mustafa after which he had been blackmailing her with the pictures.
The next day, Sakina committed suicide by hanging at their house. The Shivaji Nagar police registered an accidental death report (ADR) in the case. However, Idris told them Mustafa and his friends’ blackmailing prompted his wife to kill herself. In the video, Idris said that his dead wife had been haunting him as he failed to get the accused arrested.
“We have recorded the statements of Idris’ brother Mohammed Zuber who told us about incident and handed over the video to us. After investigations we would register a case of abetment based on the complaint of the family,” said Deepak Pagare, senior inspector of Shivaji Nagar police station.
