“On December 24, he received a notice to pay Rs 2.44 lakh in goods and services tax (GST). He was stressed about how he would be able to pay the tax,” a police source said.
Police officials said that on Wednesday, when his wife and children were on the ground floor of the house, Chandel went to a room on the first floor and hanged himself with a saree.
“When his wife went up to wake him for tea, she discovered him hanging from a ceiling fan. On hearing her screams, neighbours’ rushed in and took Chandel to LG Hospital but he was declared brought dead,” said a police source.
Inspector J V Rana of Isanpur police station said they registered a case of accidental death and are probing the case.
