On a crazy Saturday afternoon/evening, two people attempted suicide in separate incidents by jumping into Fateh Sagar lake. Fortunately both of them were saved due to presence of vigilant people around who jumped to their rescue.
In the afternoon, Tekri resident Aruna Tank jumped into the lake. She was saved by two passerby Rajesh and Pushkar who jumped into the lake and saved her from drowning. Aruna said that she had become troubled by harassment from her husband and decided to take the extreme step. Aruna’s husband had a second marriage. Police reached the spot and has taken report from Aruna and promised her action.
In the second incident, Aloo factory resident Dilip jumped into Fateh Sagar at around 4:45pm. Watching him jump, a constable stationed in the area Bhagwat Singh (Belt no 108) jumped and rescued him. He later took him to the police station and finally handed him over to his mother.
