Matrimonial and Divorce Laws in India are completely biased in favour of women. This often leaves innocent Men to give up and take the extreme step.
In another such unfortunate incident, a man from Indore, Madhya Pradesh, ended his life on July 13 leaving a suicide video blaming his wife of having an extra marital affair.
35-year-old Rajesh Patel allegedly jumped to death in front of a train in Indore district’s Laxmibai Nagar railway station area. Rajesh left his last video where he has accused his wife Archana Patel and her paramour Raj, and also his in-laws of harassing him. The victim also doubted paternity of his kids and was living under constant suspicion after his wife refused to allow DNA test for the children.
Speaking with the media, Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), Railway, Rakesh Khaka, said,
No FIR has been registered for abetment of suicide. We are conducting an inquiry under section 174 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPc) (inquiry and report on suicide).
We are yet to receive the post mortem report. We are recording statements of the family members, after which we will do the needful. We are trying to ascertain if there was any provocation behind the incident. We have taken cognisance of the video and are trying to ascertain the location, day and time of when it was shot.
In the video Rajesh is heard saying,
If something happens to me, my wife Archana Patel along with my in-laws, Santosh Patel and Dilip Patel are responsible for my death.
My wife is having an extra marital affair with a man named Raj since many years. I have sent his call details to a friend, if something happens to me, you can retrieve the details from him. I am making this video because I am doubtful whether I am the father of my two children. I have repeatedly asked my wife for a DNA test, but she always refused. I urge people of Indore to find out the truth after my death.
With regards to his assets, Rajesh said,
I have given all my property to my wife and have nothing left for me. If the DNA tests are in my favour, then please hand over my property to my children and my sisters. I request police to find out the truth after I am gone.
