Wife of slain gym trainer attempts suicide

Noida: The wife of a 35-year-old gym trainer, gunned down by assailants two days ago, attempted suicide today, the police said, even as her family members claimed that she was “unhappy” with the probe.

The father of Sajan Bhati, who was shot dead on Tuesday evening, said Rachna tried to hang herself, upset over the police’s failure to arrest the killers.

Some of her relatives saw her taking the extreme step and brought her down. She was later rushed to a hospital, he said.

Sajan was an accused in a three-year-old murder case, the police said.

His killing had yesterday triggered a protest by residents who blocked traffic on the Noida-Dadri road at Bhangel for over two hours.

The police have registered an FIR against 10 people.

Sajan’s family alleged that the police were not taking action as the accused had political connections.
