Moga, August 9

Harassed and humiliated by his wife and in-laws for being a homosexual, a 30-year old man has allegedly committed suicide at Patto Hira Singh village in Nihalsinghwala subdivision of the district, the police said today.

Identified as Harbhajan Singh of Patto Hira Singh village, he got married to Harpreet Kaur of Burj Karala village in Ludhiana district about six years ago.

However, after her marriage she realised that her husband was a homosexual and had relations with Raju Khan, also a resident of Patto Hira Singh village.

The woman told her parents, who allegedly started harassing and humiliating Harbhajan Singh. The two families met many a time for a compromise, but in vain. Irked over harassment, Harbhajan Singh consumed poison yesterday. The police have registered a case under Sections 306 and 34 of the IPC against his wife Harpreet Kaur, wife’s father Darshan Singh, wife’s mother Gurdev Kaur and Raju Khan.

After taking the body into custody, the postmortem examination was conducted at the district hospital here. The samples of viscera were also collected for laboratory tests. However, no one was arrested till the filing of this news report, said ASI Amarjit Singh, who is investigating this case.
