Lucknow. Jan 12: A doctor in Lucknow committed suicide at his resident in Gomtinagar on Wednesday night reportedly after having an argument with his wife over eating non-vegetarian food.
Dr Uma Shanker Gupta, a skin specialist, on Wednesday bought non-veg food for himself and his six-year daughter Aradhya, who was asleep but was woken up by him after which both ate together.
When his wife Deepti Agarwal came to know about this, she got angry and an argument broke out between the couple over feeding non-veg food to Aradhya. Following the heated exchange, Gupta locked himself in a room around 11.30 PM.
Half-an-hour later when Deepti knocked on the door of Gupta’s room, in a bid to apologise, he did not respond. She also called her on his phone but, he did not answer.
Deepti got tensed and called up Hemant Pandey, a colleague of Gupta, and her neighbours for help. When the door was broken, the 43-year-old doctor was found hanging from the ceiling. He was rushed to the hospital where doctors declared him brought dead.
The police have asserted that it is a case of suicide on the basis of Deepti’s confession about having a verbal spat with Gupta. Meanwhile, no suicide note has been found.
