New Delhi, Sep 12 : After coming to know that his daughter is in a lesbian relationship, a 60-year-old man has allegedly committed suicide in the capital by shooting himself in Shahdara’s Farsh Bazar area.

Revealing details of the incident that happened on Tuesday night, the police said on Thursday that they are investigating all angles of this particular case.

According to a senior officer, the police control room received a call on Tuesday night regarding the incident, after which an Emergency Response Vehicle was dispatched to the spot.

“On the spot, the man was found at his residence lying in a pool of blood. The man had allegedly shot himself in the abdomen and died on the spot. The body has been sent for autopsy,” he said.

“On prima facie enquiry, it was found that the deceased had an argument with his younger daughter as she wanted to live with her female friend. After the quarrel, he went outside and came after 20 mintues and shot himself in the outer room of his house, as stated by his wife and his daughters who were present in the house at the time,” he said.

“A case under section 25/27/54/59 of the Arms act has been registered at Farsh Bazaar police station and proceedings under section 174 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) is being carried out. The investigation is under progress,” he added.

“Several relatives of the deceased on Tuesday had gathered at his house after they all came to know about the lesbian relationship of his daughter. The girl’s father was not in favour of this relationship and wanted the girl to withdraw herself from this relationship, but the girl refused,” said another officer on condition of anonymity.

“The relatives tried to calm the situation but the man went inside the house and shot himself with a country-made pistol,” he added.

Lucknow, May 27 : A private testing laboratory that gave a false report of six people testing corona positive in Meerut district, is likely to lose its licence.

Meerut District Magistrate Anil Dhingra has already recommended cancellation of the licence of the lab, which has its main office in Gurugram and has sample collection centres in Meerut by the name of Modern Lab and Diagnostic Centre.

Dhingra said, “There was a discrepancy in the lab reports of the Modern Lab for COVID-19 cases. The matter is being investigated and whosoever will be found guilty will not be spared, strict action will be taken against the responsible. A recommendation has been sent to the government for cancellation of the license of this lab. A detailed report has been asked from CMO as well.”

On May 21, eight samples were sent to this lab from Meerut and all were found positive for COVID-19.

However, during re-testing the samples of the same persons at the microbiology department of the Meerut Medical College on May 24, six out of the eight were found to be negative. Following this, those who tested negative were shifted to a different ward. Health officials have sought strict action against the private lab for wrongly indicating that six people from the city had tested positive.
