In an another case,  42-year-old self-employed man, identified as S Guruswamy was found hanging at his residence in the Mahalakshmi Layout police station limits. According to the police, Guruswamy had hanged himself with the same rope his wife had used to attempt suicide.

“It was his wife who wanted to commit suicide. However, Guruswamy, who noticed his wife’s attempt convinced her against it. Later, he was found hanging using the same rope,” the investigating officer said.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that Guruswamy and his wife had fought about two days ago and that both of them were upset.

The problem began when Guruswamy’s father did not include his name in the will. This had upset his wife who was pestering him to talk to his family and get a share of the property, the police said. Guruswamy was in the business of organising adventure camps.
