In a deeply disturbing video gone viral, a Kanpur-based man can be heard saying, “Yehi tumhari soch hai’, to his wife who is attempting suicide. Instead of helping his wife and calming her down, the man tells her that her thinking is bad. The woman in the video, identified as Shobhita Gupta, was found dead, hanging by the ceiling fan just hours after she was recorded on video trying to end her life.
According to reports, Sanjeev Gupta and Shobhita Gupta were married for five years. The couple also had a 3-year-old daughter, and were in the habit of picking up quarrels frequently. Earlier this week on Tuesday, irked by an argument over old issues, Shobhita went to her room, and tried to hang herself from the ceiling fan.
Instead of bringing her down, Sanjeev started to take the video of the incident, and at one point said, “Bahut kharab soch hai (very poor mindset)”. While the matter was resolved in that moment, about two hours later, the couple fought again, and Shobhita hanged herself from a ceiling fan.
Sanjeev rushed Shobhita to the nearest hospital, where she was declared dead on arrival. Shobhita’s family has since been in shock. “Instead of stopping her, he kept taking the video and talking to her calmly,” one relative was quoted saying.
