A 65-year-old man suffering from cancer committed suicide at a hospital here in Maharashtra, police said on Saturday.

According to police, he was frustrated due to the disease.

He hanged himself in the bathroom of Rastra Sant Tukdoji Regional Cancer Hospital from the hook using a stole on Friday.

The deceased was a resident of Madhya Pradesh.

Meanwhile, a 50-year-old man was arrested in Nagpur for allegedly killing his wife, a police official said.

The woman was mentally unwell and the accused used to give her baths, and an argument ensued on Friday after she refused to let him help, the official said.

He banged her head against a wall in their home in Kalmeshwar tehsil and killed her, the official added.
