‘Harassed’ by cops, Karnal youth commits suicide in Karnal

Tribune News Service

Karnal, October 3

A 23-year-old youth on Saturday allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself at his residence in Sadar Bazar in the city.

The deceased has been identified as Deepu of Sadar Bazar. The family members refused to get the post-mortem done and took the body in an ambulance to the Mini-Secretariat, where they protested against the cops of the Sadar Bazar police post for harassing him to take this step.

They alleged that Deepu was harassed by the Sadar Bazar police in a case of thrashing registered against his younger brother, who is absconding in the case. He was allegedly picked up by the police to know about the locations of his brother, however, he was released later on the request of their neighbours but he was in depression and took this step.

Meanwhile, Superintendent of Police (SP) Ganga Ram Punia has sent two of the cops to the Police Lines over the allegations levelled by the family members. He has also handed over the inquiry to Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Rajiv Kumar.

Divya, sister of the deceased, said Deepu lived in Delhi with his wife and daughter. He came to his native place to meet his family three days ago, but the police started harassing them and demanded money to give them relief in the case of thrashing registered against her younger brother, she added.

"The family members said Deepu died after he hanged himself at his residence. The family members have been assured of justice by the SP while two police personnel — ASI Ravinder Kumar and Head Constable Vikram — have been sent to Police Lines. Following this, the family members gave consent for the post-mortem. The actual cause of death will be determined after the post-mortem report arrives," the DSP said.
