THANE: Shiv Sena corporator from Kalwa, Ganesh Kamble, allegedly attempted suicide and then went live on Facebook where he accused his wife of “harassment” on Monday.
Online around 4.45pm, Kamble blamed his wife for pushing him to take the drastic step. He said that she had been torturing him for a few years, and narrated his ordeal, said a senior official.
Kamble, who is seen sobbing in the footage, said he had knocked on several doors asking for justice, but no one had heeded his appeals. He said he did not trust the judicial system anymore, and had thus taken the extreme step.
The footage was viewed by some of his friends, who then rushed to his house. They took him to a private hospital.
Senior inspector V G Darekar said, “An officer from Kalwa police station went to take his statement, but he was unconscious.”
