The 45-year-old sub-inspector of Kukkunurupally police station, B Ramakrishna Reddy, had allegedly left a suicide note, blaming his seniors and colleagues. His family alleged that he faced relentless harassment.
Reports said Prabhakar Reddy also left a three-page note addressed to Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, but this has not been confirmed by the police. The state police chief has ordered an inquiry into the death.
Police sources said Prabhakar Reddy had just returned from leave. His wife had given birth to a baby boy two months ago.
A probe by senior officer Pratap Reddy however concluded that there were multiple complaints against Ramakrishna Reddy. An investigation into those was on and he was worried about being embarrassed when the probe reports came out. This was why he committed suicide, the probe by the officer had concluded.
