Two ID party constables have been suspended after Afroze Khan, a history sheeter, who had made a suicide bid at the police station two days ago over the alleged cops’ harassment, died in a hospital in Hyderabad on Saturday night.

A history sheet was opened against Khan, (27), in 2004 and the police had been harassing Khan in some way or other since then, his family members alleged, adding that the cops used to summon him to the police station frequently.

According to sources, two days ago, Khan was taken to police station by two ID party constables--Md Siraj Khan and Md.  Zameer-- in relation to a case. Khan then came out of the police station and consumed poison. The cops soon rushed him to the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) Government Hospital where the doctors referred him to a government hospital in Hyderabad.  Khan died in Hyderabad while undergoing treatment on Saturday night.

After his body arrived at Adilabad, his family members staged a protest in front of the One Town police station on Saturday late night alleging that Khan committed suicide owing to the harassment by the cops.

Following the protest, DSP K Lathamadhuri and SP SS Tripathy visited the spot and assured the family members of justice.

It is learnt that the DSP and SP recommended the suspension of the  two ID Party constables on Sunday and Karimnagar DIG R Bheema Naik issued the suspension letters.
