MADURAI: A city-based advocate, who was being interrogated in the Deputy Superintendent of Police R Vishnupriya’s suicide case by the CB-CID, attempted suicide here on Wednesday.
M Malaviya was found unconscious at Mattuthavani Integrated Bus Terminus before being shifted to Government Rajaji Hospital (GRH). His health condition was stable.
According to police sources, the advocate, who was practising in the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court, was allegedly having an affair with a woman police officer. As the relationship broke up, he made the suicide attempt.
He allegedly consumed poison and was found at the Mattuthavani bus-stand, from where he was taken in a 108 ambulance to GRH.
He was allegedly refusing to cooperate with the police and also not ready to reveal the reason behind the suicide attempt. So the police have not registered any case yet, claimed a police official.
The 31-year-old advocate had made a statement alleging that CB-CID officials were threatening him to accept that he was the lover of Vishnupriya.
The DSP had committed suicide while she was investigating into the murder of Gokulraj, a Dalit, in Namakkal district. The suicide became a major issue as she had hinted at pressure to drive the probe in a particular direction.
