Emotional scenes as Harish's body is brought from Chennai

The body of 32-year-old Tamil Nadu cadre IPS officer N Harish, who hailed from the State, was brought to Bengaluru on Friday night. The body was handed over to his father Nagarajaiah after the post-mortem around 3 pm in Chennai.

The ambulance carrying the body reached the City at around 8.45 pm.
A large number of people gathered at his Manjunathanagar house to pay their respects. A relative of Harish’s swooned as the body was taken out of the ambulance.

Harish’s sister Poornima said her brother worked for the society. “My brother worked for society and the large number of people who have gathered here are an indication of this. Hundreds of people were waiting to see his body since yesterday,” she said.

Cremation today

The body would be kept at his house till 8 am on Saturday for people to pay their respects and will be taken to his native village Gerupura near Hosur Bande in Kolar, for cremation.

Nagarajaiah said he did not seek any investigation to ascertain the cause for his son’s death. “My son went to bed after dinner and died there. He did not commit suicide. Hence, there is no need for an investigation,” he said. “His job snatched his life and there is no need to ask the Tamil Nadu government to order a probe.”

Poornima requested the media to desist from character assassination. Harish was found dead in his room at the Police Officers’ Mess at Egmore in Chennai on Thursday morning.
“The post-mortem started around 10.30 am and went on till 1 pm. The doctors who conducted the post-mortem told me that he might have died of a heart attack. His driver also told me that Harish had come back after attending a court matter in Kanchipuram,” Nagarajaiah said.
