Karnataka woman commits suicide – Harrassed by lenders over Rs 1 Crore

Chitradurga superintendent of police, Dharmendra Kumar Meena said, "As per the complaint from Ranjitha’s father Venkatesh, Ranjitha died by suicide because of the harassment from those people who lent money to her husband, Darshan. While Darshan was taking money from the people, he for surety was giving people an empty cheque.

In today’s time who does not want to make extra cash? But the question stands, are you going to work hard for it or get lured into the quick fixes?

Something so happened to the couple in Karnataka. Darshan Babu, an assistant engineer with the state minor irrigation department in Chitradurga’s Hosadurga got lured into the world of betting and winning quick money, causing him to go into debt of Rs 1 Crore. This ultimately resulted in his wife committing suicide on March 18th.

Darshan Babu’s wife was a 24-year-old homeworker and on an investigation, it was found out that the couple got married in 2020, and not longer than a year, the wife found out about Darshan’s betting addiction.

Chitradurga superintendent of police, Dharmendra Kumar Meena said, “As per the complaint from Ranjitha’s father Venkatesh, Ranjitha died by suicide because of the harassment from those people who lent money to her husband, Darshan. While Darshan was taking money from the people, he for surety was giving people an empty cheque.”

He further added, “People used to threaten the couple, come near the house and fight with them. All this increased the stress level for Ranjitha and that led her to end her life. A case, however, was filed as per her father’s complaint.”

Police ended up filing a case under IPC 306 against 13 suspects for Ranjitha’s suicide. The police have been able to arrest three people so far, identified as Shivu, Girish, and Venkatesha.

Upon investigation, the police also found out that Darshan Babu had borrowed Rs 84 Lakh from the moneylenders over two years, from 2021 to 2023 during the IPL.

In the same context, the Bengaluru Police Cyber Crime Unit had also busted an interstate cricket betting racket in November 2023. The accused had opened several mule accounts to carry out cyber frauds.
