PILIBHIT (UP): A man ended his life by consuming poison outside the residence of Superintendent of Police in Pilibhit on Saturday, after the police allegedly did not file a case of harassment against his wife.

Family members of the man said that his wife filed a complaint of domestic violence against him a few days ago. However, police have not taken his complaint against harassment by his wife.

Police sources said that Pradeep and Isha got married two months ago and the latter was allegedly demanding Rs 5 lakh from him.

On Saturday, Pradeep went to the SP's office-cum-residence to file a complaint against his wife but the officer was not present. So, Pradeep consumed poison.
