Upset over wife's suicide, young man ends life

Unable to bear the death of his wife who committed self-immolation over a domestic quarrel, a 30-year-old man allegedly ended his life here today, police said.

Manikandan and Chitra (26), who got married 18 months ago after being in love, had a quarrel two days ago following which the woman doused herself in kersone and set herself afire, they said.

Though Manikandan along with his neighbours admitted her to a government hospital, she died late last night.
