Threatened by loan-shark, Zulfiqar consumes rat poison at Santosh Nagar

Hyderabad: Mirza Zulfiqar Ali Khan (43), R/O Santosh Nagar consumed rat poison on Sunday. He was unable to bear further threats and harassment of the money lender. He died on Monday evening.

Promising to return it in a few months, Mirza Zulfiqar Ali Khan had borrowed Rs. 1.83 lakh cash from money lender Feroz of Dabeerpura. However he failed to return the money due to financial problems.

Feroz started pressurising Zulfiqar to return the amount immediately. Unable to bear the harassment, the Zulfiqar consumed rat poison at his house in Jamal Colony on Sunday. He was rushed to a nearby hospital by the family members. However he succumbed on Monday evening while undergoing treatment at the hospital.

According to Santoshnagar sub-inspector (SI) K Ravi, Zulfiqar recorded his statement before his death in which he said he consumed poison as Feroz was threatening to harm him and his family members if money was not returned.

A case has been registered against Feroz under sections 306 & 506 of IPC and was arrested on Tuesday.
