Bhopal, Nov 15 ( Nine people were booked for abetment of suicide after the bodies of a property dealer and his five-year-old son were found Saturday in a farmhouse in this Madhya Pradesh capital, police said Sunday.

According to police, Jai Prakash Singh shot dead his son and then committed suicide in a farmhouse near Hataikheda.

“On the basis of the suicide note left by Singh, cases have been registered against nine people on Saturday under the charges of abetment to suicide,” Bhopal Superintendent of Police Jaideep Prasad told Inditop.

Singh, in his suicide note, alleged that a builder here and an Indore-based liquor manufacturer were harassing him over the possession of a farm house and financial transactions.

Singh’s brother also has corroborated the charges and said his brother often remained tense over the threats from those whose names have been mentioned in the suicide note.
