MUMBAI: A man committed suicide on the Wada court premises on Tuesday, after he failed to pay alimony to his wife, who had filed for divorce.

Amrut Tare, 33, a resident of Male village, Vikramgadh, was supposed to pay Rs 60,000 — alimony for five months — to his wife.

Their divorce case is pending. On Tuesday, he had come to court for a hearing of the case and the woman complained to the judge about his failure to pay up.

Humiliated by the judge’s questions, the man went out of the room and hanged himself from a tree with a nylon rope.

The man’s wife had filed for divorce a year ago and the court had ordered him to pay a monthly alimony to his wife. The couple has a five-year old daughter.

Tare works in a factory in Wada and used to pay irregularly, prompting his wife to complain before the judge.

Tare had served a one-month sentence a few months back because of the irregular payment.

Wada police have sent the body for post-mortem. No suicide note has been found.
