Gandhigram police in Rajkot city have booked a woman, her lover and her brother for allegedly threatening her husband and prompted him to attempt suicide two days ago.

The case has been registered on Wednesday after police and fire brigade teams saved the man from committing suicide on Tuesday.

The police said Pankaj Trivedi (33) had tried to jump off his terrace on the third floor of his residence at Shivshakti Colony on University Road.

The neighbours who spotted Trivedi had called up the police and fire brigade.

The police said Trivedi told them that he was mentally harassed and threatened by his wife Archana, whom he married six months ago.

He claimed Archana asked him to file a divorce case and claimed alimony. She reportedly threatened to slap a dowry case against him and his parents and book them under domestic violence Act.

“Based on the call details and SMS produced by Trivedi, the police have registered a case against Archana, her Jamnagar-based brother Harish Dave and her lover Anil Goswami,” said Gandhidham police.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Archana and two other accused have been threatening Trivedi and book him under dowry case, if he refused to give her divorce.

Trivedi said this was Archana’s third marriage and ever since their marriage in May 2010 she has been in constant touch with Goswami. He claimed Archana and Goswami were in a relationship for over five years and had got married to him only for alimony.

On Tuesday, Dave called Trivedi to kill him and Goswami had sent a SMS saying that they will book him and his family if he doesn’t listen to them.
