Kolar district Superintendent of Police Divya Gopinath said the reason for the alleged suicide was not known and police were investigating the case.

The latest alleged suicide by a police official comes months after two similar incidents which had triggered a controversy.

DySP in Mangaluru M K Ganapathy had allegedly committed suicide in July, which had stirred a huge political storm, as he had blamed Minister K J George and two top IPS officials for his extreme step.

George had resigned as minister amid the controversy but was recently re-inducted after the Karnataka CID gave a clean chit to him and the two senior police officers in its ‘B’ report filed in a court in Madikeri court.

Ganapathy was found hanging from a ceiling fan in a room at a lodge in Madikeri, prior to which told a local TV channel that George and IPS officers AM Prasad and Pranab Mohanty would be responsible “if anything happens to me.”

On July 5, the body of deputy SP of Chikkamagaluru sub-division Kallappa Handibag (35), accused of kidnapping a person for ransom, was found hanging in his father-in-law’s home at Murgod in Belagavi district.

    My clear opinion is if people cannot take pressure of others and commit suicide, they are cowhards. Face and teach lesson to those who are putting pressure than committing suicide and orphaning the family
