HYDERABAD: Upset over the arrest of his wife - Shaikpet Tahasildar Ch Sujatha, due to corruption allegations that were recently brought to light by ACB, Vijay Kumar, died by suicide today in Hyderabad by jumping off from a building in Gandhingar.
Since his wife Sujatha's arrest, Vijay Kumar was depressed over the incident and had gone to his sister's residence at Gandhinagar.
Last night, he had discussions with family members in connection with his wife's arrest and bail proceedings.
In the early hours on Wednesday, Kumar took the extreme step.
A watchman in the building premises noticed the incident and informed residents of the apartment and called 108 medical emergency services.
The police have registered a suspicious death case and shifted the body to mortuary for postmortem.
Few days ago, Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) had arrested Sujatha, tahasildar of Shaikpet mandal for her alleged role in bribery activities in relation to a land dispute in Banjara Hills.
The agency had also recovered Rs 30 lakh and gold jewellery from her residence.
