24-Year-Old Man In Noida Ties And Gags Wife, Then Allegedly Hangs Himself

She watched in horror as he died.


A 24-year-old factory worker in Ghaziabad, Noida, allegedly hanged himself to death after an row with his wife — but not before he tied and gagged her, forcing her to watch as he made a noose with a bed sheet and proceeded to kill himself.

According to a report in the Hindustan Times, Nasreen and Rizwan, residents of Bihar's Samastipur had eloped and married a couple of months ago. They settled down in Uttar Pradesh, where Rizwan found himself a day job.

Nasreen told the police her husband was stressed by his work and his health was not well. On Friday, when he complained of being depressed, she urged him to find a regular job, which led to a fight between them. At one point, Rizwan allegedly tied her up, gagged her mouth, and made her look on as he went on to hang himself. By the time Nasreen had managed to free herself and screamed for help, it was too late.

When the neighbours rushed in, Rizwan was already dead and Nasreen fainted from the shock of the news. The body has been sent for post-mortem investigations.
