Hyderabad: Family members of Trainee SI Kiran who committed suicide on Thursday say more than 24 hours after his death, they were not given a copy of the FIR. They say because they had named TSPA director Dr Ish Kumar in the complaint, police is not going forward.
Meanwhile, TSPA officials said that they followed the procedure and and asked Kiran to join the training with the next batch. His elder brother N Arjun said that he completed his training despite being ill, but they harassed him without giving posting and were pressuring him to attend the complete training again.
“Since the academy director Ish Kumar is behind my brother’s suicide and we named him in the complaint, police is not going ahead in the investigation. We demand a fair inquiry in the case and justice for his family.” he said.
Dr Ish Kumar said that Kiran suffered a leg fracture and nervous breakdown and underwent surgery in Hyderabad. He then went to Miryalaguda for further treatment. He reported after recovering, to the academy but after staying for two days, he went on sick leave again. He completed the indoor tests at the academy but during outdoor tests, he was on leave and could not attend the tests.
”The sick leave period was more than a month. As per rules, any stipendiary trainee candidate on medical leave for a month has to complete the training with next batch.” he said.
Kiran did not turn up at the academy later, he said. The academy issued a medical invalidation certificate to Kiran, asking him to report with the next batch for training.
