A 38-year-old policeman committed suicide after a quarrel with his wife over choosing a name for their new-born. The incident happened in the police quarters at Teynampet on Wednesday night after the policeman, identified as Vairamuthu, returned from work.
On Wednesday night, after coming back from work, he went to his room and locked himself in. When he failed to respond even after repeated knocks, his family members broke open the door and found him dead. His body was later shifted to the government hospital in Royapettah.
The Teynampet police registered a case in connection with the incident and further investigations are on to find if there was any other possible reason for his extreme step.
