Shahjahanpur. In Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh, the police have arrested a moneylender for abetting the suicide of four members of the same family.
A family of four ended their lives on Monday under alleged pressure to repay the loan of moneylender Avinash Bajpayee alias Akash.
Bajpayee was arrested on Wednesday from Allahganj area on the Shahjahanpur border when he was trying to escape to the neighboring district.
The police have registered a case against him under IPC section 306 (abetment to suicide).
After the death of the family, SSP Shahjahanpur S Anand has started a helpline number in the district, on which people can report if they are harassed by a moneylender.
It is to be known that 42-year-old Akhilesh Gupta, a wholesale supplier of medicines, his wife and two minor children were found hanging inside their house on Monday.
Gupta, in his suicide note, had held Avinash Bajpai responsible for the move.
SSP Anand said that Gupta was a resident of Faridpur area of Bareilly district and had settled in Shahjahanpur to increase his business. When he was shifting from his rented house to his house, he met money lander (money lender) Avinash Bajpayee.
He said, “Bajpayee had helped Gupta get an undisclosed amount on interest. Akhilesh failed to return the money and Bajpai forced him to transfer the ownership of his house.”
“Gupta was then living as a tenant in his own house and recently Bajpai had sent him a legal notice to vacate the house. After getting the eviction notice, Gupta was very upset and perhaps that is why he decided to evict himself. Killed his family. We have sent Bajpayee to jail for abetment to suicide.”
The SSP said that the post-mortem of the dead bodies has confirmed death by hanging.
