Muzaffarnagar: A 32-year-old man committed suicide by jumping in front of a train allegedly after being harassed by two sons of a former Uttar Pradesh lawmaker, police stated on Thursday. The deceased identified as Rajesh Singh took the extreme step on Wednesday evening allegedly after being harassed by two jewellers, Ashutosh Bansal and Sanjay Swaroop Bansal who are sons of former MLA from Muzaffarnagar, Vishnu Swaroop, police said.

A case of abetment to suicide was lodged against the two accused on the basis of a complaint lodged by the brother of the deceased. According to the FIR, Singh had given Rs 7 lakh to the accused as an advance to rent a shop but was denied possession, police said.
