BENGALURU: Vyalikaval police, who began a probe into 40-year-old BBMP sanitary worker S Subramani’s suicide, on Tuesday issued notices to two BBMP officials to make a statement before the police about the incident. However, a senior officer said, that they are not considering his letter to the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President as his suicide note. 

Meanwhile, they have recorded Subramani’s wife Kavitha’s statement, who alleged that BBMP officials were responsible for her husband’s death and that he had been quarrelling with his family upset over not being paid a salary for seven months. A senior police officer said that preliminary investigations revealed that it is a case of suicide. “We found no suicide note in which Subramani has mentioned any particular reason that led him to take this extreme step,” he added.

“As part of the investigations we have issued notices to Assistant Executive Engineer Rajiv and Junior Health Officer Umashankar to appear before the investigating officer to give their statement. Once the investigation is completed, we will take action against the concerned officials and so far no officials name has been mentioned in the FIR. We are yet to receive the postmortem report and the exact cause of death. Based on the family’s allegation, we are gathering every evidence surrounding the incident. Meanwhile, we have also asked BBMP officials to share documents and details of Subramani’s biometrics,” the police officer added.
