HYDERABAD:  Mild tension prevailed near Gollapalli at Jadcherla in the neighbouring Mahbubnagar district on Monday, a day after two members of a family committed suicide and three others attempted suicide because of alleged harassment by a realtor, said to be a close aide of a TRS leader.

Bereaved family members and their kin tried to stage a protest, demanding the immediate arrest of the realtor. Reports said police had to whip out their lathis to disperse the protestors who initially tried to shift the dead bodies to Jadcherla and later, block the Hyderabad-Bengaluru highway by placing the bodies on the road.

Trouble began when the family members of the two deceased brothers - Srisailam and Mahesh - tried to take the bodies to Jadcherla from the Mahbubnagar government hospital after postmortem to stage a protest in front of the residence of Irfan, the realtor.

The police, however, forcibly shifted the bodies to their native village Gollapalli. However, with the help of locals,  the family members tried to shift the bodies to the national highway to stage a road blockade demanding action against Irfan and some others in Gollapalli. A huge posse of policemen was rushed to Gollapalli and the rally was stopped midway. The protestors pelted stones on the police forcing the latter to cane them away. The police have registered cases of abetment to suicide against Irfan. Police investigation has revealed that Irfan instigated local Kuruma Sangham members to usurp the property of Venkataiah and his sons. Irfan also allegedly asked the local Kuruma Sangham members to send Venkataiah to him for ‘settling’ the issue.
