NEW DELHI: A newly-wed youth allegedly committed suicide after he was reportedly pressurized by his in-laws to live in his wife’s house and sever all ties with his parents. The deceased has been identified as Deepak Yadav (27), who was working as a computer operator in Delhi Electric Supply Undertaking (DESU). The incident was reported from the New Friends Colony area in southeast Delhi on Thursday.
According to the police, Yadav got married on April 17 to one Aradhana (name changed to protect identity). He was living in the DESU colony at Sarai Kale Khan after their marriage. The police are investigating the death as a simple case of suicide. “If we get further proof, we will initiate action,” a senior officer said.
According to allegations made by Yadav’s uncle, Vijay Pal, problems began the day he got married. “We objected to his in-laws’ demand that he will have to stay at Aradhana’s house after marriage. However, they threatened to lodge a dowry case against us. We got confused and agreed to the proposal. We never knew Deepak was under such pain due to this. Last night, his father-in-law called us and said Deepak was unwell. Before we could react, the police called up to say that we should reach AIIMS as Deepak had committed suicide,” said Pal.
“We will study the postmortem report and will also look into the allegations after we go through Yadav’s suicide note thoroughly,” said a senior police officer. Source: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Cities/Told-to-live-with-in-laws-newly-wed-youth-kills-self/articleshow/4595378.cms
