Police arrest 6 TRS members for abetting suicide of businessman, woman
Six members of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) were arrested on Tuesday for abetting the suicide of a real estate businessman and his mother in Kamareddy.
Gangam Santosh and his mother Gangam Padma set themselves ablaze at a lodge in Kamareddy on April 16. They had accused a few TRS members and a circle inspector of harassment.
In a video on social media, Santosh had named and also posted photos of seven people, including Ramayampet Municipal Chairperson Palle Jitender Goud, five other TRS leaders and Circle Inspector Nagarjuna Reddy, alleging that they had harassed him.
“Santosh also left a suicide note, in which he said these people had harmed his business and made life difficult for him”, police said.
Santosh said in the note that he was financially ruined by the people he had mentioned and hoped that they will get justice at least after they were dead.
A case of abetment of suicide was registered against them and a senior police officer was ordered to probe the allegations.
