Day after Amritsar man ends life, wife kills self

Tribune News Service

Amritsar, October 11

A day after Nawapind village resident Vikramjit Singh, alias Vicky, ended his life in a hotel room on the Batala road here, his wife Sukhbir Kaur today hanged herself at the village. In a suicide note, Vicky had held a woman sub-inspector responsible for taking the extreme step. The police have initiated action under the Code of Criminal Procedure in this regard.

Sukhbir Kaur hanged herself on the upper floor of the house late last night when the family and relatives were asleep. The incident came to light when a relative woke up around 3.15 am. Sukhbir was in deep shock after her husband’s death and had sought action against SI Sandeep Kaur.

Jandiala police station SHO Harchand Singh said no suicide note was found at the scene, but action had been initiated under Section 174, CrPC, on the statement of Surinder Singh, father-in-law of the deceased.

Vicky, in the suicide note, had accused the SI, who also belonged to the same village, of harassment and blackmail. He had claimed she had taken Rs 18 lakh from him on different occasions and had been threatening him through her friends. The police had booked the SI on charges of abetment to suicide.

“We are taking legal opinion to proceed further. Sukhbir Kaur apparently committed suicide in grief. As the evidence in both cases was same, opinion is being sought from the district attorney on how to go about in this case,” said the SHO.
