A 27-year-old man, who had a dowry harassment complaint filed against him by his wife a few days ago, shot himself with a country-made pistol outside his in-laws' house in Ghazipur police station area late Friday night.
Police Saturday have lodged a case against the wife and her parents for abetment of suicide on the complaint of deceased's father.
Police said Nitin Kumar Mishra, who owned a Panmasala shop in Indira Nagar, had married Anjali in May this year.
Sub-Inspector Chandrabhan Yadav said the couple had problems in their marital life because of Mishra's addiction to liquor. Anjali lodged a complaint with Mahila police station, alleging she was being harassed for dowry by her husband and in-laws, Yadav said.
