A 36-year-old man allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself at his house in northeast Delhi's Karawal Nagar area, police said Sunday.

The deceased has been identified as Vijay Kumar Tiwari, they said. Before committing suicide, Tiwari recorded a video from his mobile phone accusing his in-laws of mentally harassing him, police said. A case has been registered and investigation taken up, a senior police office said. Police are questioning his in-laws in connection with the incident, he said.

Tiwari hailed from Sultanpur in Uttar Pradesh and lived with his family in Shiv Vihar locality of Karawal Nagar, the officer said. He worked as a distributor of engine oil at an automobile shop, he said.
