BAMS doctor couple allegedly commits suicide over dispute
Pune: In an unfortunate incident, a 28-year-old doctor allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself on Thursday, a day after his doctor wife also ended her life in a similar manner over a dispute in Maharashtra's Pune city, police said.
According to the police, the 25 year old doctor wife committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling at her home in Wanwadi on Wednesday evening, while her husband, who was also a doctor, was found hanging in the bathroom on Thursday morning.
According to a recent media report in The Indian Express, both the doctors with BAMS degrees lived in a bungalow in Azad Nagar of Wanwadi area.
The couple, who got married in 2019, used to run a clinic in Wanwadi area, an official said.
'For the last three months, the doctor husband was practicing in Karsurdi village near Yavat in Pune district, while his wife worked at their Wanwadi-based clinic. On Wednesday, he received a call from one of his patients, suffering from a mental illness. However, since he was in Kasurdi, he asked his wife to attend to the patient, but she refused,' the official as quoted saying by PTI.
The couple then had an argument over the phone, and in the evening when he came home, he found his wife hanging in a room on the third floor of their house, he said.
When he failed to revive her, the doctor alerted the police and she was rushed to a hospital, where she was declared dead, the official said, adding that a case of accidental death was registered.
The doctor husband also allegedly committed suicide by hanging in the bathroom the next day, and left a brief note stating no one should be held responsible for his death, the official said.
