    A 30-year-old man, accused of beating his wife, allegedly hanged himself inside the lock-up of a police station in Chhattisgarh's Surajpur distict Wednesday.

    Ten policemen were suspended after the incident, an official said.

    Krishna Sarathi, the deceased, had been arrested only a few hours earlier following a complaint lodged by his father-in-law at Chandora police station.

    The complaint said that Sarathi, native of neighboring Balrampur, arrived at his in-laws' house at Domhat in Surjapur district Tuesday to meet his wife Sundarmani.

    The couple quarreled and Sarathi allegedly beat her up and left.

    After Sundarmani's father lodged a complaint, Chandora police arrested Sarathi from Balrampur and brought him to the police station around 7 am Wednesday.

    Around 12 noon, he was found to have hanged himself from the lock-up's door with a bedsheet.

    He was declared dead before admission at a local hospital, the police official said.

    Surajpur Superintendent of Police Girija Shankar Jaiswal suspended 10 policemen, including station house officer R D Singh, following the incident, he said. Further probe is on.
