Banker's body exhumed after son cries foul

Police on Wednesday exhumed the body of a banker who had died last month, after his son made a complaint, suspecting that the death was mysterious. 

Ankaiah, 57, who worked for Union Bank of India in Gandhinagar, had collapsed and died in his home on January 28. His wife, Nagarathna, daughter Jhansi Rani and son-in-law Pandiyan — who were all at home then — later buried him in a graveyard near Shanthinagar, police said. 

His son, Suresh Babu, however, made a complaint to the police on February 9, suspecting that the death was mysterious. Ankaiah had expelled his two daughters, who married against his wish, from home and even decided to “disinherit” them, Babu said and claimed that the deceased wanted to make him (Babu) his lone inheritor. 

Nagarathna and others in the family had, however, opposed Ankaiah’s decision and might have murdered him, police said, quoting Babu. 

Following the complaint by Babu, Nagarathna was summoned to the police station for questioning. She is said to have told the police that her husband died of heart attack. The body was exhumed in the presence of the tahsildar and later sent to the Ambedkar Hospital for post-mortem.
