Delhi scrap dealer commits suicide

IANS  |  New Delhi 

A 35-year-old scrap dealer committed suicide over not being able to pay his debt, police said on Friday. His family claimed the man hanged himself after getting frustrated from standing in bank queues to withdraw to pay off his debt.

The incident was reported at around 12 a.m. on Thursday night when Mohd Shakeel was found hanging from the ceiling fan of his house by his 12-year-son in Mustafabad in Gokulpuri, police said.

Shakeel returned home at around 6.30 p.m. After having dinner he went to sleep in his room. His son woke at around midnight and found his father hanging from the ceiling fan, police said.

According to preliminary investigation, it appeared that Shakeel was in debt and was supposed to pay back money to some people. He took the extreme step for this reason, police said.

However, his family members said that Shakeel was frustrated with standing in long queues outside banks for the past three days to withdraw new currency notes but he could not get the to pay back his debts.

"No suicide note was recovered from Shakeel's possession. We have initiated investigation under Section 174 of the CrPC (Inquest Proceedings). Further probe is on," Deputy Commissioner of police A.K. Singla said.

Shakeel is survived by his wife and children, police said.
