In Chennai, a software engineer ended his life by hanging himself at his home in Mylapore after a fight with his wife over uploading their wedding pictures on Facebook.
Chandan Kumar Singh, 29, had married Sandhya, his colleague, three moths ago without his parents’ permission as Sandhya came from a different religion.
Chandan’s parents kept his marriage a secret and told their relatives that he had settled in Australia. But after one of Chandan’s relatives saw his marriage pictures posted by Sandhya on Facebook, Chandan’s parents were contacted by relatives one after the other.
Chandan was pressurized by his parents to remove the pictures and Chandan in turn compelled his wife to remove the pictures from Facebook. Sandhya disagreed as said that there was nothing wrong with it.
A fight broke out between the couple after which Chandan locked himself up in a room. Next morning, Sandhya woke up to find her husband dead.
Chandan left behind a suicide note on his laptop in which he said, no one should be held responsible for his death.
