‘Humiliated’ by wife, in-laws, man kills self in Ludhiana
Allegedly humiliated by his wife and in-laws, a 37-year-old man, Mandeep Singh, poisoned himself with Celphos, a farm pesticide, at his home in Ludhiana on Monday night, police said on Tuesday.
Police booked his wife Seema Rani, brothers-in-law Goldy and Deepak, and mother-in-law Neelam Rani on a statement of his sister Meenu and a video message circulated by him among friends and family over WhatsApp before committing suicide.
Meenu said Mandeep, a resident of Jawahar Nagar Camp who worked as labourer but was unemployed at present, had taken a loan of Rs 4 lakh from a financer but was unable to return it due to financial crunch. In the video, Mandeep said his wife and in-laws taunted him over his financial condition and humiliated him, forcing him to kill himself.
Inspector Jatinder Singh, station house officer of Division-5 police, said Mandeep was taken to a hospital where he died on Tuesday.
Meenu came to know of the video on Tuesday evening following which she lodged a complaint, police further said. The accused are absconding.
