Kurnool: A 39-year-old roadside vendor committed suicide by consuming acid after a sub-inspector, allegedly, had beaten him along with his wife at a police station when the couple approached the police to give a complaint about a problem they were facing.

Two days back, he and another vendor quarrelled over business issues. Both of them approached police for settling the row. However, police personnel did not pay any attention towards the issue.

Feeling that injustice was meted out on him regarding the issue, on Saturday Varadarajulu along with his wife Sujatha went to police station and appealed the police to solve the problem. Instead of solving the problem, the station sub-inspector started beating both of them in public outside the police station. The sub-inspector threatened to file cases against on them if they will not calm on this issue. The couple returned home and on earlier hours of Sunday, Varadarajulu consumed acid while his family members were sleeping.

 

His wife who found her husband in an unconscious position alerted family members, who rushed him to government local government hospital. He was shifted to Kurnool Government General Hospital, where he died while undergoing medical treatment. The deceased’s relatives staged a protest at the police station and demanded that action to be taken against sub-inspector, who had beaten up Varadarajulu and his wife.
