A wedding turned out to be a tragedy when a close relative of the bride committed suicide after the 25-year-old was reportedly denied to dancing along with the 'baaratis' at Indira Ekta Nagar here on Saturday night.
According to the police, the marriage of the girl was to be solemnized on Saturday and the 'baraat' was supposed to come from Annapurna of the city. When the baarat reached there, the bride's cousin identified as Rajesh Beleem, son of Kailash also wanted to dance with others.
Police said that the family members feared that Beleem, who was in drunken state, would create trouble for them affecting the smooth conduct of the marriage. So they locked him in a room and left home to receive the groom. After around two hours, when family members returned to open the room where Rajesh was locked in, they shocked to find him hanging from the ceiling.
The scared family members rushed Rajesh to MY Hospital, where doctor declared him brought dead. This infuriated the relatives of Rajesh. Police said that they wanted to shift him to a private hospital as they were not satisfied with the facilities available at the MY Hospital. Later, they reportedly took the body of Rajesh to the residence of a close relative. However, police reached the spot and asked them to hand over the body to them for shifting it to the MY Hospital. The body was shifted to the MY Hospital after a long struggle with the aggrieved relatives.
Sanyogitaganj police inspector Shailendra Srivastava said that the family members of Rajesh were not interested in post-mortem, so they were trying to hide the body first. However, they relented only after the police convinced them of the consequences that they have to face later had they not handed over the body to the police for post-mortem. Finally, the body was sent to MY Hospital for post-mortem.
