A 35-year-old man working as a driver with a city-based businessman hanged himself to death in Sector 9 on Saturday. Ahlesh hanged himself in the servant quarter of his employer’s residence.
Preliminary investigations by the police has not been able to ascertain the reason behind Ahlesh taking just a drastic step.
The body had been sent for post mortem examination. Ahlesh was employed with the businessman,who runs a petrol pump and a transport company,for over a decade.
The deceased’s relatives found it hard to believe that Ahlesh took such a extreme step as they claimed that he always used be jovial.
The police said the reason behind his suicide would be known once Ahlesh’s family members,who are based in Bihar,would reach Chandigarh. The police are investigating the matter.
