A couple allegedly committed suicide by consuming poison at their residence in Ambad locality over “harassment” by some money-lenders
The Hush Post: A couple from Maharashtra’s Nashik district allegedly consumed poison to end their lives in the Ambad locality of the district over “harassment” by some money-lenders, the cops said on Saturday.
The deceased have been identified as a 38-year-old Vasudev Ambadas Jadhav and his 34-year-old wife Sangita. The incident took place on Friday, a report said.
“Police recovered a ‘suicide note’ beside their bodies, which states that both of them were ending their lives as they were fed up with the harassment by five money-lenders from whom they had taken loan,” an Ambad police official was quoted as saying.
As per the report, the deceased were originally from Shirpur in Dhule district of Maharashtra.
“Vasudev, a labour contractor, had borrowed money from the lenders for business purposes. He had repaid some part of the money, but the lenders were pressurising him for the remaining amount,” a police official was quoted.
“Friday morning, the couple consumed poison. But the incident came to light when one of their relatives went to their place and found them lying motionless,” the cop was further quoted.
The bodies of suicide victims were sent for conducting the post-mortem and their relatives were informed about their death. The police have lodged an FIR against the five money-lenders and an investigation has been initiated in this regard, the report said.
