New Delhi: A 27-year-old man committed suicide on Tuesday in New Delhi, as he was depressed over being beaten by his in-laws and wife's refusal to return home from her parents' house.

Lokesh, a makeup artist got married to Sheetal, who works in a tour and travel company in 2012. However, differences started arising between them within a few months and having a child did not help either.

According to Lokesh's family, Sheetal would spend most of her days in her parents' house at Mori Gate in north Delhi instead of her in-laws house at Shahdara in east Delhi. This led to arguments between the couple.

On May 14, Sheetal's family visited her in-laws’ house and assaulted Lokesh. They took away Sheetal along with them, leaving her eight month old baby boy behind, alleged his family.

Lokesh decided to bring back his wife and visited her home on Monday. However, he was again assaulted and Sheetal refused to return with him. Humiliated and depressed, Lokesh hung himself, leaving behind a seven page suicide note in which he has blamed his in-laws for driving him to take the extreme step.
