A 56-year-old lawyer reportedly hanged himself by rope on Saturday morning at his home in Meerut’s Meenakshipuram colony. Police have found a suicide note in which the late Omkar Tomar accused a BJP lawmaker and several other party leaders of molesting him, police said.

According to police, the deceased’s son, Luv Kumar, who also serves as a lawyer at Allahabad High Court, will be separated from his wife. Your parents filed an FIR under the Dowry Act against Luv. The BJP MLA and other party members forced Tomar to settle the matter by paying his daughter-in-law’s family Rs 14 lakh. Allegations have also been made that Luv opened fire on his in-laws who filed an FIR against him at the Khatauli Police Station in Muzzafarnagar. The Khatauli police also raided the lawyer in connection with this, the police added.
