Depression drives bizman to end life
Greater Noida: A 40-year-old businessman allegedly committed suicide inside his flat in Assotech society in Zeta-1 sector of Greater Noida on Monday morning. Police have not received any suicide note from the spot.
According to police, the deceased has been identified as Ravindra Malik, a native of Panipat district in Haryana. Cops said that Malik, owner of a polyethete bags manufacturing company in sector Ecotech-III of Greater Noida, was living in flat number ST-013 along with his family. However, he was alone at his house when he committed suicide as the family had gone to native place in Panipat.
Police said that the body was first spotted by Malik's wife and his father-in-law on Monday morning.
"A Police control room(PCR) call was received around 8:50 am on Monday by Malik's wife who returned home from Panipat along with her father. As she came back home, she found the door locked from inside. Even after making repeated attempts when no one responded from inside the house, she alerted the security guards of society. The guards broke open the door and found Malik hanging with the ceiling fan inside his room. Immediately they alerted police and a team rushed to the spot," said Jitendra Kumar Tripathi, Station in-charge of Industrial area police station in Surajpur.

"Victim's family members told police that he was under extreme metal stress from past few months while he also suffered a loss in his business and was under huge debts. As of now we have not received any complaint into the matter while the body was handed over to family members after getting the postmortem done," added Tripathi. Malik is survived by his wife and two teenaged children.
