VILLUPURAM: A 40-year-old man, who became an alcoholic after being jilted by his second wife, died after accidentally falling into a farm well on Tuesday morning.

Police said Chakravarthi (40),  is a farmer, belonging to  Sozhaganur village near Kanai. His first wife Brindha (34) had passed away two years ago. A year later, he got married to Sundari (30) of the same village.

Chakravarthi used to consume alcohol and the couple used to have frequent fights over it. Unable to bear it any longer, Sundari left him three months back. Ever since she left him, he became an alcoholic and was drunk for most part of the day.

On Monday night, he had gone to turn on the borewell motor in his farmwell and had been missing since.

On Tuesday morning, some of the farm labourers, who passed by Chakravarthi’s land, found his body floating in the well. They alerted the Kanai police and Villupuram Fire and Rescue Services personnel, who recovered the body. It was sent to the Government Mundiyambakkam Hospital for an autopsy.

His relatives suspect that Chakravarthi, who was in an inebriated condition, might have lost balance and fallen into the well. The Kanai police registered a case and are investigating.

Newly-wed Ends life

In another incident, a newly married 24-year-old man hanged himself after he was not able to bear with stomach ache he had been suffering for the past three months. The incident took place at Melthaniyalampattu near Thiruvennainallur on Sunday morning.

Local sources said Gajendran (24), a construction labourer, had married his uncle’s daughter nine months back. For the last three months, Gajendran had been experiencing stomach pain. Though he took treatment at the Mundiyambakkam GH and other Government Multi- Specialty Hospitals at Puducherry, it didn’t bring him relief. On Sunday morning, Gajendran hanged himself in his house when his wife was not present.
