HYDERABAD: A 29-year-old man, who was counselled by police in connection with a harassment case, died under suspicious circumstances at a private hospital hours later.
The incident took place after the Begumpet police registered cases and summoned the accused to appear before the police next day.
The deceased, P Ramu, is a resident of Patigadda of Begumpet police limits. The police, however, said that the accused complained of health problems due to starving. Ramu died due to heart attack and there were no internal and external injuries, police said.
DCP, North Zone, B Sumathi said that one Jayaram, a private employee, had lodged a complaint with the police alleging that his nephew P Ramu was involved in harassing and teasing his minor daughter. Jayaram’s family were holding talks for past two days at their residence at Patigadda to put pressure on Ramu that if he doesn’t mend his ways they will be forced to lodge a police complaint.
“Ramu was in police station for a brief time along with his family members. He was allegedly starving for three days due to talks held regarding the issue at their home among family members. He later complained of giddiness. Further it is learnt that the deceased was a chronic diabetic,” DCP said.
