An Indian man has spent nine months living on a tree because his wife refuses to say sorry for cheating on him.
Sanjay, whose surname is not known, married Tara last year in Ramgaon, Varanasi, before he moved to Mumbai.
But in March, he returned home from work a little early to find Tara in a compromising position with their next-door neighbor in their Mumbai home and when she refused to apologize, he climbed a nearby tree and has been there ever since.
The 25-year-old has survived on a diet of fruit from the tree and food handed up by relatives.
“He eats and sleeps on the tree and even relieves himself from there,” his sister told The Asian Age newspaper.
Police have said they can’t intervene because he hasn’t committed an offence.
A spokesman for Cholapur police confirmed: “The man is on a tree top for the last nine months over some domestic dispute.”
However, some villagers have claimed to have spotted Sanjay climb down from the tree and go for a stroll, when he thinks that nobody is watching.
Sanjay’s wife has since returned to live with her parents, and has still not said sorry.
