CHENNAI:  Father of young IPS officer N Harish, who was found dead in the police officers mess on Thursday, said he never complained of any work-related stress.

“I met my son on Tuesday and spoke to him regarding his scheduled marriage. My son did not complain of anything. Though he wanted to become an IAS officier, he was happy to be in IPS. He was very keen on joining civil service and  did not even consider other job offers he got,” said Nagarajappa.

He said he discussed about the arrangements for his wedding scheduled  for March 31. He suspected his son could have succumbed to health complications and there are no chances of him choosing to kill himself.

Meanwhile, several senior police officers, including DGP Ashok Kumar, paid homage to him  in the hospital.

N Harish, a 2009-IPS batch officer, was posted in Chennai as an assistant commissioner in the State directorate of vigilance and anti-corruption. His promotion to SP cadre was delayed allegedly since he was not able to clear a test in Tamil language after joining service.
