Bareilly: A 75-year-old UP man committed suicide upset after his children stopped him from getting married for the second time, police said on Saturday.

The incident took place in Kanshiram Colony in Bareilly , where Arshad was found hanging from a ceiling fan at his home on Friday morning, a police officer said. His first wife had passed away years ago and according to police, when Arshad's children got to know about their father's intention of getting married again, they tried to dissuade him. They claimed that his marriage at such a late age would harm the family's reputation.

An adamant Arshad refused to budge which lead to a heated argument between him and his children on Thursday, police said. “On Friday morning, when the family members woke up, they found Arshad hanging from the ceiling fan," the officer said.

The man had five sons and three of them were living with him, police said, adding that his three daughters are married. The post-mortem report confirmed that the man committed suicide, they added. (PTI)
