A 35-year-old man committed suicide by hanging himself at his house here in Dadumajra Colony, on Monday.

Survived by wife and a three-year-old daughter, Pradeep Kumar, left behind a suicide note blaming his in-laws of harassment.

Kumar wrote “I quit” on the suicide note addressed to his mother, pleading for forgiveness. “Sorry mom. Mujhe maaf kar dena. Main ab or nahi seh saktaa,” reads the suicide note signed by Pradeep, blaming his wife and in-laws for taking the extreme step.
