An Indian man has ended his life after his wife allegedly denied having sex with him over the course of 22 months of their marriage in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Muli Parmar, 55, mother of the railway employee Surendrasinh, alleged that her son was depressed after his 32-year-old wife Geeta Parmar, denied having any physical relationship with him, reported Times Of India. Surendrasinh had reportedly died by suicide when the family members went to attend a funeral.
On returning, they saw him hanging from a ceiling fan. Muli then went to the cops and filed an FIR alleging Geeta abetted the act. She claimed that her son was mentally stressed as his wife did not allow him to sleep with her, reports Mail Online. Muli also claimed that Geeta had vowed to not engage in intercourse with her husband. Muli alleged in her FIR:
“Once I had gone inside my son’s room and found that he and my daughter-in-law were sleeping on different beds. When I asked my son about this, he told me that they did not have physical relations as Geeta had taken a vow that she would not have slept with her husband.”
She further added that the couple started fighting over petty issues post which Geeta went to live with her parents. Surendrasinh also blocked her phone, however, he went into depression. The grieving wife was later arrested and booked for abetment to suicide following the complaint by her mother-in-law.
Surendrasinh married Geeta, his second wife, in October 2018 following a divorce in 2016. This was Geeta’s third marriage. The case is under investigation by Shaherkotda police in Ahmedabad.
