On Wednesday, the matter went out of his hands when they defamed him in front of their colony and broke the petrol tank of his motorcycle,”

The police added that on Wednesday, the three men intercepted him and assaulted him. They threatened him saying that if they told their boss about the loan he would not be able to live in the city. “The man could not take the harassment and committed suicide on Saturday morning.
