Techie commits suicide in jail

Shubankar Katyayan Khan, 33, a native of Jamshedpur, was working with a software giant in the city. In June 2007, he married Nandini from Baroda. The marriage was registered in the city on December 1, 2007.

Following a strained relationship, the two applied for divorce. Nandini filed a complaint alleging dowry harassment. Following a court direction, Commercial Street police arrested Khan on July 27 and he was remanded to judicial custody.

His advocates had applied for bail. On Friday, Shubankar was admitted to Victoria Hospital after he consumed some tablets in jail. He died on Saturday morning. The couple has a six-month-old boy.

Shubankar’s lawyer Anand said: “We have not yet received the post-mortem report. Once we know the cause of death, we will proceed further.” According to him, mental harassment pushed Khan to take the extreme step.

  1. When a wife sucide irrespective of any reson , the husabnd and all his family memebrs put behind the abr, but when a husband sucide, that is termed as social service in this country and the wife get all the award. The husabnd killers moving freely in the society , wich wittness every year more than 56000 married men end thier life and thier killer wife got all awards for that. Great coutry, it looks the pain of a mother or sister is nill when they loss thier son or brother.

  2. For more than a year repeatedly I have faced EXTREME TORTURE that is beyond imagination-abuse, violence, extortion day in and out. He locked me in house and treated me even worse than a dog. He tore my clothes, banged my head on car.He had no mercy on baby. He derived pleasure out of this. For him a wife meant a slave. This sounds strange because though I am native, I had no connection from Bihar as I was groomed in different states. And since men in Bihar treat women like a property…that explains why that state is so backward.(of course all men may not be so).
    I used to plead him, fall on his feat and even warned him hundreds of times..but in vain.I was left with only 1-choice – to commit suicide or to seek help.Yes, I knocked ALL DOORS before going to law.He threatened to harass me even after divorce. I was a perfect case of suicide. If I had committed suicide probably people would have thought it to be normal. He thought it was all good until He tortured me. But when it was his turn, he thought it was not just..People read what is there in media.And it is fair for people to sympathise for anyone’s demise.
    I am in terrible pain for his loss…I just wished he would become a human being and live a happy what if not with me. No, I am not a saint. There were a few things where I did not obey him like going to my parent’s place for baby’s delivery which he was dead against..again there were mysterious reasons behind this which he never told me. Is there anything wrong if a women decides to deliver her baby as per her wish, more so when her husband is abroad? For this, again he tortured me.

    I dont know probably it was his guilt that made him take the extreme step. Or he did this to prove he is right… No wife can even think of letting something like this happen to her husband..never.Do we get married for this? Mothers should teach their boys to have care and respect for women. Their bad behaviour and bad temper should be discouraged right from childhood. Since, these values were not there in him…now in this world I feel most sad for his mother. For me, he did not let me live, when he was alive and now after his death I am living like dead. Like any Indian girl, I too dreamt of a family, of a loving husband, of a beatiful life…but God had different ways. Thanks for cursing me. My fault is – I am alive…for my baby.

  3. Gr8 keep up the good work.
    “I am in terrible pain for his loss…I just wished he would become a human being and live a happy what if not with me”

    Yes you are pained because the “Golden Goose” have died and that is your financial loss. What makes you think he would have led a happy life after being put in prison. Yes we know women do this things of showing tears and gain sympathy. This is a routine matter in all family courts. Lawyers teach how to shed crocodile tears in front of Judges and those moron too just melt by looking couple of projections coming from your torso. Yes, you will definitely able to garner sympathy from your cousins. Somewhere deep down your heart at some point of time you will feel the guilt of having killed a human being. Good Luck dear.

  4. She did not complain to police when clothes were torn or head was banged on the car as alleged. Or Extortion day in and day out.

    But *AFTER* mutual divorce application, criminal cases were filed against husband. She should be lucky if she doesn’t get charged with ‘abetment to suicide’. But in this country of banana republic system, that may very well happen….

  5. “He threatened to harass me even after divorce, that too after mutual consent divorce.” he is so cruel man challenged to threaten you for future torture and finally committed suicide.Is it….

  6. First of all , i do not understand, how a man can get the Poision in Jail of in Police custedy? So, prima face a case should be registered against his wife and police for murder or force to sucide .This is nothing but a conspercy to kill the husabnd and the Husabnd killers moving freely in the society like more than 56000 married man ending their life every year and thier killer wife free at society, this one more addition.
    The hard reality we stupid man do not understand and the real fact is where which today i got form a group memebrs today morning. One must read and came to reality or be ready to die worse than a animale.
    “The FBI had an opening for an assassin. After all the background checks, interviews and testing were done, there were 3 finalists:

    Two men and one woman..

    For the final test, the FBI agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.

    ‘We must know that you will follow your Instructions no matter what the circumstances.

    Inside the room you will find your wife sitting in a chair .. . . Kill her!!’

    The man said, ‘You can’t be serious. I could never shoot my wife.’

    The agent said, ‘Then you’re not the right man for this job. Take your wife and go home..’

    The second man was given the same instructions.

    He took the gun and went into the room. All was Quiet for about 5 minutes. The man came out with tears in his eyes, ‘I tried, but I can’t kill my wife.’ The agent said, ‘You don’t have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.’

    Finally, it was the woman’s turn. She was given the same instructions, to kill her husband. She took the Gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one After another. They heard screaming, crashing, Banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was Quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the Woman, wiping the sweat from her brow.

    ‘This gun is loaded with blanks’ she said.. ‘I had to Beat him to death with the chair.'”

  7. Hello Nandini, I am also a girl and victim of false 498a. But not agree with your statement because I already heard all this kind of false allegation and crocodile tears. An educated boy will never to do this and thats why he killed himself.

  8. Nandini
    Don’t wory about these comments. you just keep on goining as you are then only you will be recognised as Empowered Woman of India.
    it is clear from your story that you have learnt good lessons of woman empowerement from Girja Vyas & co.(NCW).

  9. Its seems like the wife of techie is expecting a sympathy by putting all false allegation even after his death. She is not any abla nari, the wife had forgotten how the sex straved judges just with mere allegation of “abla nari” registered the case of attempt to murder on this poor chap. This lady nandini is now expecting that media ashould listen to her false story and potray as sita. This lady need to be put behind bars for registering the false case and abetting husband to cruel suicide. This sort of cruel wives should be hanged to death in public for misuing the law.

  10. Any one will take the extreme step of sucide only if he or she is unable to take further harrassment or stress. It is very clear that you had harrassed him beyond imagination. You have troubled him, torturtoured him, harrassed him to such a point that he had no choice but to end his life. You should be ashamed of yourself that you have driven him to death. You have written that “No wife can even think of letting something like this happen to her husband..never” Then why you filed criminal case against him. You filed criminal case against him to send him to jail, to harrass him. You kind of people enjoy when other suffer. I am very sure you will be the happiest person after his death but GOD will not forgive you. Not in next birth you will get punishment from him in this birth itself.

    His sacrifice will not go waste.

    You will be punished.


  11. should be given a loud applaud for such a good script.. so how much your lawyer charged you to help you with this oscar winning performance of gathering fasle sympthaty… I feel sorry for the just born son.. dont live for him.. he would be better off without you.. Wat kind of upbringing you and your terorrist parents will give to your son can only be imagined.. We dont wants more Kasabs to be born we want humans.. So were you not happy with the mutual settlement that you filed so many cases after filing for mutual divorce.,. So what amount was at stake?? and what would you have done with that money??? Plz tell this to everyone here.. I hope your son grows up to read this news and he knows the I am sure you will picture your husband has a villan in front of him as he grows up while you find another bakraaa… I pray justice prevails and you and your parents will be taught a good lesson if not expected from this Indian Judiciary but there is someone above that who will settle things down for you..

  12. Nandini – You should live in eternal shame and guilt if you can be considered anything close to a human being. No – that is a far cry. Immoral women like you who walk into police stations at the drop of hat are the scum of humanity. You and your well-wishers should rot in the worst of the hells. Sure, you can invent hundred different stories to garner sympathy from the uninformed. Our experience shows the w#)%es who walk into the police stations against their husbands are the aggressors, the victimizers and the murderers. You deserve no sympathy but utter condemnation from the society and God. After you raise your son, I hope he marries a b!#(h like you and commits suicide in front of your eyes. Then your future d-i-l will put you in prison and you rot there for the rest of your miserable life! Amen!!

  13. Shubankar’s aatma will be definitely cursing this empowered shurpanakha. I pray that her son grows up fast and gives her a much more empowered DIL.

  14. It’s Interesting how judgmental people can be, how did you assert conclusions without knowing details. When i say details i meant the facts and not newspaper reports.

    @ Law victim – Education does not imply humanity, common sense or civility. Education just suggests you have a certain level of knowledge, however in this country even that isn’t guaranteed, there’s more than enough to suggest it.

  15. Did you visit your husband when he passed away?
    Did anyone from your familiy visited for Subhankar’s last rite?
    For your allegation, “banging on the car”, he did not own a car. I know for sure.

    God will never forgive you for killing a mother’s son. Mother dont give birth to a child to get him killed like this.

    You first be a human being first.
    You girls, after marriage want your husbund to cut all the strings with his parents. That’s highly impossible thing.

    You did not allow him to see his kid when he came to meet you in your parents’ place. Isn’t this in-human?

  16. Unless,some one undergoes the tension and torture under these gender biased laws and corrupt police, for the sack extortion, the real misery can not be understood.
    I am this Nandini must have been a torture for her husband with advice of some greedy lawyers. I doubt he committed suicide, in side the jail, most probably murdered for some gain outside. Where is access to the poisonous drugs inside the jail?. Most likely theses drugs are pushed inside his mouth after killing. only investigation will the truth.

  17. Nandini,

    Don’t lie. You can make stories because you are womand and the worst indian law will protect you any way. But remember, you will not escape from the punishmnet of the god, if you have put your husband in a false case

    People like you does not deserve any mercy. dont sympathise this lady nandini. Now her husband is gone, she will cook up any stories for fools like us to listen and feel pity for her. but you won’t deserve it lady.

  18. Ladies, remember one thing…you think you are doing a wonderful job by indulging your husband’s in false cases. The indian legal system may protect you, but you will never escape from hands of god….

    yadha yadhahi dharmasya glanirbhavati bharata abhuddanam adharmasya tadatmanan srujamyaham
    paritranaya sadhunam vinasayacha dushkrutam
    dharma sastapanardhaya ..sambhavami yuge yuge

    Satyameva Jayathe!!!!

  19. Even in cooked up story of Nandini, there was hardly any mention of what torture was actually given. Just some vague statement. Seems like a case where, once husband stopped giving into unreasonable demands, he becomes torturer and deserves to be put behind the bars and could be dead. Great Indian Laws doesn’t do for this growing trend which is extremely shameful.

  20. mental harassment has spoilt another young life! think of parents in their old age! #498a not favouring women either!

  21. what a loss of a young precious life.his wife should be ashamed of herself and that so be our great legal system.i had never trusted a bit on indian judiciary system a bit,and these incidences make my belief rock hard.section 498 a is the worst section.hope the god will punish this bitch.

  22. It is because of these types of ladies that many young men are fearing to get married these days. The gender baised laws are made to protect uneducated women residing in the rural areas but the urban women are misutilizing this law just to extort money from innocent husbands. They don’t realize how much mental torture this innocent guy and their families are going through. These kind of women should be killed in public.

  23. See how this women is still shedding crocodile tears, is spite of mentally torturing her husband to an extent that the guy killed himself. Let the God punish her.
