Patil, engaged as a labourer at Ordnance Factory, was found hanging from a ceiling rafter of the staircase at an unoccupied quarter in the adjacent premises.

Patil, learnt to be addicted to liquor, lived at his quarter with his wife and daughter. He had apparently procured loans from Mahindra Finance and Bajaj Finance companies for some reasons, which are yet to be discovered by police.

A senior police official said that no one in the family, including his wife, were even aware that Patil had taken the loans. Patil’s elder brother has, however, claimed to have seen finance company representatives coming to the quarters on a couple of occasions.

It was only after his death that the family came to know that Patil was being harassed by the finance company representatives. He has named Sachin Brahme of Mahindra Finance, and Amit Naharkar of Bajaj Finance in the suicide note, which was found in his trouser pocket.

Police said Patil had been untraceable since last Thursday. His family had also searched for him at different places. It was in the morning that Patil’s hanging body was spotted by a neighbour, who alerted the family. After the contents of the suicide note came to light, Wadi police lodged a FIR against Naharkar and Brahme.
 This is the second offence registered within a month against finance company representatives at Wadi police station. In the earlier offence, Wadi police had booked several recovery agents of a finance company for illegally seizing and extorting money from a transporter.
 At Yashodhara Nagar police station, recovery agents of a private finance company were booked for seriously assaulting a transporter at Teka Naka.
