Indian IT worker blames second wife's cruelty in suicide message
Straining family relationship and changing values are a reality in this world, especially in the wake of the rapid globalization. Like the people of other countries, Indian too are facing this situation and trying to adjust to the changes. But not every one succeeds in this. Especially people who grew up in tightly knitted and conservative families – a norm in India - find it particularly difficult to adjust.
Here is a story of an IT worker from Bangalore, who recorded a video message just before committing suicide because of a strained marriage.
In a bizarre incident, a techie from Bangalore committed suicide after recording a videographed message in which he blamed his second wife for his death.
Syed Magdoom, aged 40 years, committed suicide at his residence at J C Nagar claming that he was unhappy with the treatment meted out to him by his second wife.
Syed, who worked as a professional head, in his video-recorded statement said that he was ending his life after being betrayed by his second wife Muskan Seher.
"She harassed and blackmailed me emotionally. My son Rihan means the world to me. But I was prevented from meeting him. I was asked to pay Rs 10 lakh and a dowry harassment case was booked against me," Syed said.
Syed's first wife was a Canadian lady. However, the two separated later. He then got married to a Bangalore based lady called Muskan Seher and had a child with her.
