HYDERABAD: A sub-inspector shot himself dead with his service revolver in the police quarters of the Siddipet police commissionerate on Wednesday. His family alleged that he had been harassed by his senior officers.

Sub-inspector Prabhakar Reddy had returned to work a few days ago after two months of leave. His wife had recently delivered a child and was living at her parent’s house and Prabhakar Reddy was staying alone in the quarters.

His body was found this morning with a bullet injury to the head.

Prabhakar Reddy's suicide is the third by a sub-inspector (SI) in the Siddipet police commissionerate in just over a year. The commissionerate falls in chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s native district.

Last year, an SI posted to the same police station as Prabhakar Reddy, the Kukunoorpally police station, ended his life in a similar manner in the same police quarters. Then too, there were allegations of harassment by senior officials. The local DSP was transferred subsequently.

Siddipet police commissioner Shiva Kumar said an impartial inquiry would be conducted by a DSP rank official from Sangareddy district.
