A security guard hanged himself to death in a private school after learning about his wife’s illicit affair with three men.

According to police, the deceased man, identified as 28-year-old Akhilesh Kumar Patel, took the extreme step on Monday, Aug.16, at the Lotus Valley School in Sector 50 of Gurgaon, India. He was found hanging in the storeroom of the school, police said.

Patel left behind a suicide note stating the school management should be held responsible for his death.

"A suicide note was found in his shirt pocket," the Indian Express quoted the Station House Officer of the Sector 50 police station, Inspector Rahul Dev as saying.

"He stated clearly in his suicide note that there is no fault of the school where he is committing suicide in the matter, and the institution is not responsible," he said.

Patel said in the note that he is taking the extreme because of his wife, Santoshi, and his mother-in-law Chanda Bai.

He alleged that his wife was having an illicit relationship with three men. He also said his mother-in-law had falsely accused him of sending his wife to other men and had threatened to kill him.

On Tuesday, the police registered a case against the two women under sections 306 (abetment of suicide) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on the basis of a complaint submitted by the deceased man’s cousin, said police.

The man’s body was retrieved from the scene and sent to a medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.

“The post-mortem of the deceased has been conducted. We are conducting further investigations in the matter. No arrests have been made yet," said the SHO.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a 39-year-old man hanged himself to death after leaving behind a suicide note naming four men, who kidnapped his wife.

Jagmeet Singh was found hanging at his home in the Muktsar district of Punjab, India on Aug. 10, police said. He took the extreme step days after he had alleged that four men had kidnapped his wife.

"Three men, including - Khusbag Singh, Chhinder Bhagwan Singh, and Gora Singh (a rural medical practitioner), kidnapped and took my mother away. Despite search, my father couldn’t trace her," Jagmeet’s minor daughter said in a complaint.

"My father was extremely upset over the incident and police’s inaction of arresting the upper-caste men," the girl said in her complaint.
