A 38-year-old private company employee committed suicide after writing a 24-page death note to DCP (West) Ravi D Channannavar.

In the death note, the deceased Mohan Kumar, a resident of Cholur Palya near Magadi Road, said he is forced to end his life due to harassment by his wife and in-laws.

Kumar married Ganga Lakshmamma of Madanayakanahalli in 2007 and the couple has a nine-year-old daughter. Ganga works as a manager in a LPG gas distribution company in RPC Layout, Vijayanagar.

She walked out on Kumar four months ago with her daughter following clashes over her affair with her employer and began living with her parents.

A senior police officer said Kumar also took a self-video, stating that he is committing suicide and sent it to his father-in-law, Ganganna, by WhatsApp around 3.30 am on Friday.

When Ganganna saw the video, he rushed to Kumar’s house on Friday morning, only to find him hanging from the ceiling.

Based on the death note found in Kumar’s room, the police have booked a case under IPC Section 306 (abatement of suicide) against Ganga, her brothers Hanumantharaju and Anjana Murthy, her mother Mangala, uncle Narayana Murthy and her employer Vijayendra R Bathija.

Affair with employer

In a complaint filed with the police, Kumar’s father Hanumantharayappa stated that the couple was happy till 2017. After his daughter-in-law joined the Sun-Shain International company in RPC Layout in Vijayanagar, she began having an affair with her employer.

The relationship changed her behaviour as Bathija bought her a phone, scooter and clothes. Kumar came to know about the affair and warned both to stay apart.

He even asked his wife to quit the job, but Ganga did not pay heed and instead left Kumar to live with her parents.

Hanumantharayappa, who filed the complaint with the police commissioner, mentioned that his son was under depression. Kumar even attempted reconciliation with his in-laws to get back his wife, but the family hurled abuses at him.

The KP Agrahara Police, who registered the case, is probing the incident further.
