Mumbai:

A 35 year-old-man allegedly committed suicide by consuming rat poison at his residence in Mumbai's Kurla as he was depressed over having no child despite marrying five years ago, a police official said on Wednesday.

The incident occurred at Qureshi Nagar locality in Kurla, he said.

"The man, identified as Mazhar Ali Ansari, resided with his wife. He was under depression and used to frequently tell his near and dear ones that his life was incomplete without a child," an official of Chunabhatti police station said.
