A 20-year-old boy, a resident of Ambedkar Nagar, committed suicide on Wednesday.
It was after his death that dramatic scenes were witnessed at Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital when his family alleged that he took the extreme step due to harassment by his in-laws (wife’s family).
The deceased was identified as Amandeep who used to run a shop selling lottery tickets in the area.
Ranbir, a relative of deceased, said that Amandeep had got married nine months ago but his in-laws were not happy with the love marriage.
He alleged that parents of the girl wanted to send their daughter abroad to which Aman objected and later went into depression and then consumed poison.
The family demanded strict action against the in-laws. The incharge of Marado police post said that it was yet to be confirmed if the couple was married. The body was sent to the Civil Hospital for post-mortem.
