HYDERABAD: A day after 40-year-old accused died under suspicious circumstances in Mangalhat police station, Osmania mortuary forensic doctors declared on Sunday that the accused died due to myocardial infarction (acute cardiac arrest).
Hyderabad police commissioner M Mahendar Reddy said that scrutiny of CCTV footage covering the period of stay of Bheem Singh at police station indicated that he was treated with dignity and was comfortably seated.
“He went to the toilet where he suffered massive cardiac arrest. There were no injuries found anywhere on his body. During investigation it was revealed that the deceased was a chronic alcoholic,’’ the police commissioner said.
About the case in which Bheem Singh was involved, the CP said that one Dilip Bharathi of Begum Bazar lodged a complaint with Mangalhat police for assault on him by the deceased.
According to the complaint, Bheem Singh in a drunken condition stopped Dillip Bharathi when he was on the way to his brother’s residence at Rahimpura and demanded him to host a party since he recently performed his daughter’s marriage. When Dillip stated that he will host the party later, Bheem Singh used filthy language and beat him up in drunken condition.
