Kota (Raj), Sep 6 (PTI) A 40-year-old man allegedly hanged himself from a tree after a fight with his wife in Rajasthan's Baran district, police said on Sunday.
The incident took place in Goverdhanpura village on Saturday night, they said.
The body of Gyanchand Sahariya, a resident of Ranibarode village, was found hanging from a tree at an agricultural field near his in-laws' house, police said.
Sahariya was living with another woman. He, however, had been staying with his wife for the last one month at his in-laws' house, said Station House Officer (SHO), Bhanwargarh, Vijendra Singh.
The SHO said Sahariya was a liquor addict and had a fight with his wife late Saturday evening when he was in an inebriated state. He left the house on Saturday night and could not be traced by the family members, police said.
Prima facie, Sahariya took the extreme step due to family squabble, the SHO said, adding no suicide note was recovered from his possession.
The police handed over the body to his family members after post-mortem on Sunday morning and lodged a case of unnatural death under section 174 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) for further investigation. PTI COR CK
