IAF pilot from UP commits "suicide" in TN

A 32-year old Indian Air Force pilot attached to Sulur airbase near here allegedly committed suicide in the Officer's Mess following reported quarrel with his wife whom he married just three months ago, police said today.

Squadron Leader Abhishek Tripathi of Allahabad was found hanging from the ceiling of the mess in the IAF campus this morning.

Tripathi had reportedly picked up a quarrel with his wife over phone with regard to a property a couple of days ago and since then was found depressed. This was suspected to be the motive behind his extreme decision, police said.

Police registered a case and investigation was underway. The parents and wife of Abhishek were expected to reach here tomorrow, police said.
