Couple ends life over harassment by money lenders in UP's Shahjahanpur
A couple allegedly committed suicide by hanging from a ceiling fan here on Thursday over harassment by money lenders, police said on Thursday.
While Chandra was found hanging from the fan his wife was found lying on the bed with a noose around her neck, he said. According to a letter found in the man's pocket, he had taken a loan of Rs. 1 lakh from one person and Rs. 1.50 lakh from another person.
Although he had paid the money back to the lenders they were pressurising him for taking more money due to which he took the extreme step, the letter stated.
It appears that Chandra first strangled his wife to death and then committed suicide by hanging, the ASP said.
A case has been registered and the bodies have been sent for post-mortem, the ASP said.
Further investigation is underway, he said.
