HYDERABAD: A policeman posted atop a high-rise building overlooking the route taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Hyderabad shot himself dead with his service revolver on Saturday.

Sub-inspector Sridhar was posted to an apartment complex -- named Happy Home apartments -- as part of security arrangements along the P V Narasimha Rao Expressway on which the Prime Minister drove to the Sardar Patel Police Academy 2 km away for a meeting with top police officers.

Sridhar was summoned from his home posting in Penchikalpet in Asifabad district for the PM's visit. A home guard Deepak and three constables were in his watch team.

Sridhar had been on night duty for several days prior to this assignment. In the wee hours of this morning, he was found lying in a pool of blood in a room on the 18th floor of the building. A service revolver was by his side.

Deepak, the home guard posted along with him, said the inspector was not happy with his posting. He  also had some family problems. "I knew SI Sridhar for the past one and a half year. He was not satisfied with his posting. Yesterday he told me he wanted to marry a girl but there were problems. He wept for a while," said Deepak.

Ganga Reddy, the ACP of Rajendra Nagar police precinct, said Sridhar had family issues. They checked his phone records and found that the last call made was to a girl named Bhagya Lakshmi.

Police Clues teams have collected evidences for the probe. A case of suspicious death has been booked.

Inspector Sridhar was a native of Pagidipalli village in Warangal district.
