Indore, November 25 (Agency)
In Indore, Madhya Pradesh, an 18-year-old youth committed suicide by ordering pesticides from e-commerce website Amazon. State Home Minister Narottam Mishra on Thursday at the request of her father Ranjit Verma directed the police to register an FIR against Amazon officials and send them notices and call them for questioning. Local fruit seller Ranjit Verma has been making rounds of the police and administration offices for the last 4 months, pleading for legal action against Amazon.
Verma has alleged that Amazon illegally supplied poison to his son without verifying the authentic documents of the customer, after which he committed suicide. According to Verma, some people were pressurizing his son to clear the dues of Rs 2 lakh, due to which he was running under stress.
