Domestic woes drive NRI to suicide

LUDHIANA: The pressure exerted by his wife and in-laws drove a 33-year-old NRI to suicide. Before he poisoned himself at his Tagore Nagar residence, Amit Bansal, a permanent citizen of Canada, wrote a 15- page suicide note holding his wife and several members of his in-laws\' family responsible for his death. Amit, who was undergoing treatment at Dayanand Medical College and Hospital, died on Saturday.

Police have registered a case of abetment to suicide against the wife of the deceased and members of her family, who are at large. Harjeet Singh, in-charge of Jagatpuri Police Post, said they have registered a case of abetment to suicide against Nisha his wife, Bhushan Kumar his father-in-law and resident of Chander Nagar, Kiran, his mother-in-law, Abhishek, brother-in-law, Priya Abhishek\'s wife, Jagdish Kumar and Pyare Lal Nisha\'s uncles, Garg alias Pappu maternal cousin of Bansal\'s father-in-law, his daughter Bholi and son- in-law Ashwani Kumar, among others. Police also said teams have been formed to nab the accused.

According to Harjeet, Amit and his wife came home seven to eight months ago and supposed to return to Canada in March next year.

He said Amit married Nisha nine years ago and they have an eight-year-old daughter, Yuvika Bansal. Police said Amit was tense because of the pressure created by his in-laws who wanted their share in the house his father recently sold for Rs 76 lakh. He said as Abhishek was unemployed, Amit\'s in-laws wanted him to start a business with the money.

\"As Amit was upset with his wife and in-laws and he consumed poisonous substance\", Singh said. Sanjay Gupta, uncle of the deceased, said they recovered eight stamped envelopes containing a suicide note, addressed of the President, Prime Minister, chief minister, governor, human rights commission, DGP Punjab, commissioner of police, and others, but couldn\'t post them.
