A doctor, who worked in a prominent hospital in Gurugram, allegedly committed suicide by injecting himself with a poisonous substance at his flat on Saturday. It is suspected that he was mentally disturbed over his wife’s alleged extramarital affair, the police said.

Sodhi was living with his wife Monika and children in his Gurugram flat located in Orchid Petals Society at Sector-49. The couple had a love marriage around 22 years ago, the police said.
The father of the deceased, Vinod Sodhi, said in his police complaint that Monika is a teacher in a renowned school in Gurugram.
“Manuj told him that his wife has been having an affair with someone for three years. This made him tense. On Saturday, under stress, Manuj injected himself with poison,” Vinod told the police.
