PANAJI: A Goa police constable, accused of murder, allegedly committed suicide in a police lock-up. Following this, three police constables were suspended on Friday.

Arrested this week in connection with the murder of one Ratan Carol, police constable Devidas Sinari was found hanging from the roof of the lock-up in North Goa district in the small hours of Friday.

The incident happened at the police station at Usgao, 25 km from here.

Sinari was arrested after severed, decomposed limbs and the headless corpse of Ratan Carol, who was reported missing since December 17, surfaced at different spots in the Chapora river. 

Police believe that the murder was a result of personal enmity. Sinari's brother, Dattaguru, is also an arrested accused in the case. 

The three constables suspended following Sinari's death are Surendra Narukkar, Ramakant Sanvordekar and Paresh Parab.

"They have been suspended pending inquiry," Superintendent of Police (North Goa) Umesh Gaonkar told IANS.
