KOLKATA - A city court Wednesday sent a local businessman to three-day police custody for provoking a model to commit suicide.
City-based model Sanchita Sarkar hanged herself to death at her Jodhpur Park residence in south Kolkata Tuesday. She was in a live-in relationship with businessman Saupayan Sinha, a police officer said.
He said Sarkar had a heated altercation with Sinha Tuesday morning when she came to know that Sinha was already married and was having an illicit affair with her. She later committed suicide.
Sinha was arrested and taken at the Alipore court Wednesday.
