Thereafter, Secretariat staff alerted the police, a police spokesperson said.

A suicide note was recovered from the deceased which indicated domestic discord as the reason for his suicide, the spokesperson added.

The suicide note addressed to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik states that, "my brother-in-law, Yashpal, who is a Head Constable in Uttar Pradesh Police, and one other relative, Chaman, are responsible for my death.

"They had on Thursday assaulted me publicly and also videographed it. It hurt my self-respect and I have no other option but to commit suicide. You can check the video and take legal action against them.

"My wife, who is also a constable with Delhi Police, has an extramarital affair with one Pankaj from my village. When I had complained about it to my in-laws, they abused me and also threatened that I am demeaning their dignity.”

Sohanveer Singh was posted at Nand Nagar Police Station in Delhi and was a resident of Bihari Pur village. He joined Delhi Police as a constable 11 years ago.
