Amritsar, August 25

A retired teacher tried to end his life by consuming some poisonous substance today. He was rushed to Civil Hospital, but doctors, finding him critical, referred him to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital.
Jagmohan Singh, who attempted suicide, was upset after a local resident allegedly tried to grab his property at Batala road. Even the police didn’t entertain his complaint, his family alleged.
He had been running his school since his retirement. Harjinder Kaur, his wife, said he had been running a school at Batala road. Recently, he sold the school to Naresh Saini, a resident of Batala road. Naresh gave him cheques, but these were bounced. “When Jagmohan confronted Saini over the returned cheques, the latter started harassing him. Saini took the possession of the land and started dismantling the school structure,” she said.
According to Harjinder, her husband filed a complaint with the Rambagh police but the “cops sided with the accused and harassed Jagmohan.”
Meanwhile, Saini rubbished the allegations. “I have a written agreement that I can dismantle the structure after giving the token money to Jagmohan,” he said. Rambagh SHO Jaspal Singh said investigations were under progress and both parties had been summoned to the police station after two days. He expressed his ignorance about Jagmohan’s suicide attempt.
