VARANASI: A 25-year-old man allegedly committed suicide by consuming toilet cleaner inside the Saraiya police station, where he was called for questioning, police sources said.

Family members and neighbours of the deceased alleged that he was beaten up by the police, following which he took the extreme step.

Pintu Rajbhar, of Saraiya locality, was called at the police station for questioning for allegedly eloping with a 17-year-old girl, SP (City) Dinesh Singh said.

He was rushed to BHU trauma centre where he died during treatment, sources said.

Saraiya police outpost in-charge Durgesh Yadav has been suspended and Station Officer of the police station Sriprakash Gupta has been sent to police lines, SSP R K Bhardwaj said.

Following Pintu's death, the locals blocked the Saraiya Road demanding that the police personnel who "harassed" him be booked, sources said.

The blockade was lifted after senior officials met the protesters and assured them that action would be taken.
