Pune man kills self after being harassed by wife, her lover


A 40-year-old man in Pune city committed suicide after allegedly being harassed by his wife, her paramour, brother and her mother.

The deceased, identified as Mohammed Asgar, committed suicide by jumping in front of a railway. He was living with his wife in Kondhwa.

Mohammed Asgar’s father had approached Samarth police station and a case was registered against daughter-in-law, her mother, brother, and an unknown person who is the lover of the wife, reported PuneMirror.

The four have reportedly been booked for abetment of suicide under sections 306, 323, 504 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code.

“She [The wife] had fought with us and had asked my son that she wanted to stay in a separate house. So my son bought a flat in Kondhwa and the two started living there. Fed up of harassment by her, my son left and was living with us for about 10 months,” the report quoted the deceased’s father in his complaint as saying.

The father has alleged that his daughter-in-law had beaten his wife and had her lover physically attack his son Asgar. He also said that she tortured his son and compelled him to name the flat on her name.

“On April 2, my son told me he was going out for some work and left the house. After some time I received a call from the Pune railway police who told me that they had found my son’s body near Sangam bridge,” the father said.

Meanwhile, the police said that they had found a suicide note in which Asgar blamed harassment from his wife, her brother, mother and her lover. The case is under investigation.
