A suicide note, in which he pleaded the financiers not to harass his wife for money, was recovered from his shirt’s pocket. 

According to One-town police inspector D Kaasi Viswanath, the deceased, who was identified as G Naga Suresh (35), had a shop in the One-town market and he had taken loans without his wife’s, Deepthi’s, knowledge. He decided to take the extreme step because the financiers had started pressurising him for money.A case under Section 174 of CrPC (suspicious death) was registered and police sent the body to a government hospital for postmortem.
