Kalaburagi: An 48 yr-old Head constable allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in the KSRP quarters at Taj Sultanpur on the outskirts of Kalaburagi city.
The deceased has been identified as Annarao Saibanna Gamaga.
The news was confirmed by the family members of the victim. They found him hanging in the hall of the police quarters and informed the police.
Annarao took this step as he was unhappy with his transfer and had applied for transfer back to KSRP battalion in Kalaburagi.
According to his wife, Seethabai, “He was withdrawn and mentally upset from the past few days after his application for transfer was not taken into consideration. Incidentally, eight other constables of the KSRP battalion who were transferred along with Annarao were successful in getting the transfer back to Kalaburagi few days back.”
Annarao was an alcoholic and had few health problems, his family member said.
Ms. Seethadevi said, “He had not complained of any harassment by higher officials and was only upset that his application for transfer was not accepted. He did not show any symptoms of suicidal tendency. After having dinner with the family members, he was discussing various family matters till midnight and asked her and his younger son to sleep in the bedroom and preferred to sleep in the hall.”
