Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A Delhi-based man allegedly committed suicide in after being subjected to casteist remarks.

Before dying, he also made a video on his cellphone specifying the reason for taking the extreme step.

The body of 35-year-old was found in today with his family alleging that he was subjected to casteist remarks.

He was a resident of Bawana and belonged to a lower caste. He was allegedly subjected to abuse and ridicule and his family claimed it was the reason he took his own life.

They also claimed that a few days back they had made PCR calls about the matter, but the police arrived and did not listen to them.

However, a senior police officer said that the matter was settled between the two parties.

"We had received a call about the fight between Kumar's family and their neighbours. Our teams also went there but they reached a compromise," said a senior police officer.
