"It was around 9 am when Dheeraj's friend came to pick him and called on his mobile phone. When he didn't respond, his friend went upstairs and found the door locked from inside. When he peeped through the window, he saw bodies of Kajal and the two children lying in bed while Dheeraj's body was found hanging," said Kaushalya, the house owner.

When police reached the spot, they found a suicide note written by deceased Dheeraj on the wall of the room. "The note was written by a black marker on the wall in which he mentioned his wife's ill character a reason behind the incident.

He also pasted a paper on the wall in which he wrote those phone numbers to which Kajal had been calling. He alleged that his wife also used to consume alcohol and eat gutka," a senior police officer of Ghaziabad police said.
